HPI is an investment company focusing on the hospitality and entertainment industry. In this growing sector the directors, given their background in the industry, see many opportunities for early stage investment in companies with the potential for significant growth and expansion. This will give shareholders in HPI an opportunity to participate in investments otherwise not directly available to them and the possibility of significant returns on their investment.
The initial target investment area will be brands that are just coming to the market that have the potential to expand rapidly such as coffee shops, wine bars, and entertainment venues. The directors will analyse the investment potential based on their experience in the given hospitality sector coupled with their ability to determine the growth and expansion potential.
