Texas-based Technology Innovation Group Inc. (TIG) was co-founded by president Dr Norman Kaderlan, a consultant to Fortune 500 companies, and Dan Hanson who has more than 25 years of professional experience in financial management, investment banking, and investment portfolios.
TIG creates public-private partnerships to establish technology-based enterprises that are critical for economic growth. We grow individual companies, create and assist incubators, accelerators and innovation hubs, and stimulate the transfer of technology from research institutions to the marketplace.
TIG entered into a partnership with Da Vinci Holdings and more specifically, with the Technology Top 100 (TT100) Awards programme. The rigorous TT100 entry assessments was a major draw-card for TIG as the programme awards South African companies with sustainable management of people, processes and innovative technology with global potential.
Da Vinci TIG will be prospecting for promising South African technology businesses and then mentoring them into global success by facilitating angel investments and building partnerships between corporates, government and NGOs and thereby aiding the commercialisation process in a systemic manner.
