About this event

Osman Kent – His lifetime contributions to technology 

Osman’s journey with entrepreneurship started in 1983 when he co-founded BenchMark Technologies Ltd, debuting the first real-time DOS machine that featured high resolution graphics.

BenchMark was subsequently acquired by Du Pont corporation in 1983 and Osman continued to serve as Vice-President, overseeing the firm’s chip business. He continued to steer the company towards investing its resources and R&D into 3D technology.

The Fund is focused on investing primarily at the expansion capital and growth equity stages in companies that have started to scale in revenues with a proven business model with evidence of market uptake and customer adoption. Atlantic Bridge has developed a unique and differentiated strategy which focuses on specific technology themes and the implementation of the “Atlantic Bridge Model” for scaling companies internationally. The “Bridge Model” accelerates the scale up of technology companies in the US and Chinese markets. This approach is highly differentiated and has delivered strong performance results to date.

The team has a thirty year operating history working together in technology as entrepreneurs and investors with over $7 billion in exits, having raised four successful technology funds.
