Grace Century - About Us

Grace Century is a research group representing accredited investors, 500+ strong, with a wealth of experience, contacts and insight.

We filter through the 100’s of projects that are brought to us each year and find the true “game changers” that are poised to be the next leader of a new industry or change an existing industry. This usually results in one or two very special projects for consideration a year.

As a group, we are able to negotiate for our members projects obtained from a position of strength, gaining the best possible arrangement, and gaining continuous involvement and oversight as the project develops.

Through this continuous involvement from the top, utilizing our networks in all aspects of business, and offering on-going information, we believe Grace Century gives its members a project with dramatically reduced risk while increasing the probability of success.

Grace Century - About Us

  1. 1. 2 GRACE CENTURY | SEARCHING THE GLOBE FOR OPPORTUNITIES Capital is the life blood of every business. Virtually every business ever started and every business that will ever be formed all started the same way. First, with the entrepreneurs own money, and then with “forward-thinking” investors, willing to accept risk for much greater returns.
  2. 2. 3 GRACE CENTURY | SEARCHING THE GLOBE FOR OPPORTUNITIES Between the years 2000-2008, Banks and other traditional sources of capital for the “would-be entrepreneur” slowly left the space. After 2008’s financial crisis, funding capital for start-ups through these sources, was non-existent. Private Equity, Venture Capitalists, and Angel Investors have never played a more important role or had the opportunity to participate at such an advantageous stage in young companies lives.
  3. 3. 4 GRACE CENTURY | SEARCHING THE GLOBE FOR OPPORTUNITIES Grace Century is an International Research and Private Equity Consultant, located in Ras Al Khaimah, U.A.E. The firm is fully licensed by the RAK Investment Authority. Grace differs from a typical Private Equity firm in that once it has researched a niche industry, it selects the most promising “young” firm within that industry, conducts stringent due diligence, and then negotiates for both its group and Grace the best capital formation package it can. Grace acts as a bridge to the selected firm and its group and acts as an independent out-sourced investor relations entity for its members with constant updates and review. Only “game-changing” and disruptive business models are selected. In other words, firms who are poised to be industry leaders from the start. Grace prefers the following industries: Healthcare, including Life Sciences, Financial Services, and Alternative and Renewable Energies. Rarely do Individual Investors have the opportunity to participate in highly researched Private Equity Projects at the “ground floor”. This is usually available only to “insiders”. At Grace, we believe that high reward doesn’t have to be accompanied by high risk. Through research, due diligence, and constant oversight, Grace believes it can actually reduce risk in a traditional high risk asset class. From the beginning of every project, Grace is involved with top management on a daily basis, utilizing its expertise and global network to assist the promoted firm in every aspect of launch.

  5. 5. 6 GRACE CENTURY | SEARCHING THE GLOBE FOR OPPORTUNITIES Grace receives literally over 100 projects submitted for consideration a year. These are screened through a rigorous process of parameters, and produces approximately one project a year. These fall into the $5,000,000 to $20,000,000 range and must be a “Game-Changer “ for the way business is normally done or be a solution for an untapped or unmet need.
  6. 6. 7 GRACE CENTURY | SEARCHING THE GLOBE FOR OPPORTUNITIES Our Consultants are International professionals, all of which have been entrepreneurs in their own right. They know what investors want and need when considering a private equity project. This includes: • Due Diligence to find companies with distinct and competitive advantages • Monitoring “use of capital” • Marketing and channel assistance for the companies • Information on benchmark successes and challenges
  7. 7. 8 GRACE CENTURY | SEARCHING THE GLOBE FOR OPPORTUNITIES Projects are introduced to new Members with an eye on risk. While we reserve some projects exclusively for existing Members, we hold one open to new Members. A new Member is asked only to decide if Private Equity participation in a “ground floor” project is appropriate for their individual portfolio. With that, they are provided with all the necessary business plans and research necessary to make an informed investment decision. If a member decides to participate, they invest directly with the firm under consideration. Grace Century only acts as a bridge, as it also invests directly along with its Members. In other words:
  8. 8. 9 GRACE CENTURY | SEARCHING THE GLOBE FOR OPPORTUNITIES www.quantummd.com | Sector: IT/Healthcare Project Overviews The Quantum Group, allows you to profit directly from the approaching “U.S. Government stimulus” provisions, mandated by 2014. Electronic Medical Records (the ability for Doctors, hospitals, and patients to have all patient records on line in real- time) are a mandated and required element of the U.S. health-care reform. It has long been proven that EMR not only improves the level of health-care but also reduces costs. It is estimated that 90% of the U.S. records are still on a paper system. The ones that aren’t, still don’t talk to one another. Quantum’s platform, PWeR 2.0 is poised to change all that. “One Patient-One Record” ready- to- use, “Cloud-Based” systems. Security and reliability parameters exceed the strict HIPAA guidelines. Briefly noting key points: • Quantum holds 3 U.S. Patents with 17 U.S. Patents Pending. • The platform encompasses all aspects from History, drug interaction, scheduling, billing, and practice management. It also allows patients to track their Doctors directions, facilitating “wellness programs” with simplicity. • No other platform we know of does this. PWeR is a unique ‘cloud based’ solution developed to capture significant market share before the 2014 mandate allows, in “Critical- situations”, for providers to have access to vital history to properly provide treatment. The market for EMR is 90% undeveloped in the U.S. as well as international. This must go to 100% developed by 2014 to avoid large penalties. Quantum, through Grace, also has access to both Latin America and Chinese markets. EMR

  10. 10. 11 GRACE CENTURY | SEARCHING THE GLOBE FOR OPPORTUNITIES www.provialabs.com | www.store-a-tooth.com Sector: Regenerative Medicine / Bio-Tech Project overviews Stem Cells ARE the future of medicine. They have the potential to re-grow and repair virtually any organ, nerve, tissue or bone. Originally, Stem Cells from Umbilical cords was able to be used in therapies to treat certain blood disorders in family members. The family had to decide at the time of birth to store the cord in a” Bio-Bank” approved for storage. If the decision wasn’t taken, it was gone forever. This industry called the “Cord-Blood” industry and has been growing at a rate of 25%/year.  Recently, the NIH (National Institute for Health) discovered that powerful Stem Cells can be found in a Child’s first set of teeth and also in Wisdom teeth. These Dental Stem Cells have the ability to grow bone, tissue, and even neural cells. This has created an unprecedented new opportunity to provide Stem Cell banking services to families. Grace has found the one company, that was founded a year ago. They are already positioned to be the leaders in Dental Stem Cell Banking. They are the ONLY Dental Stem cell Banking service which: • Has proprietary rights and uses the ONLY FDA/ADA (food and Drug Administration / American Dental Association) approved kit for transporting dental tissue • Cultures Dental Tissue Stem Cells in a FDA and GMP approved Laboratory and under CLIA (Clinical Lab Improvement Amendment), and the ONLY one in the U.S., which tests for Stem cell Biomarkers, thus ensuring that the customer’s sample contains Stem Cells. • The Company is already doing 30% of its business internationally. The U.S. Market is estimated to be worth $3Billon, and with 4 million new Children coming into the 5-12 year age group annually, the market is wide open.  While 1000’s of firms are working on therapies to utilize these cells, and some have not yet even been thought of, everyone knows that the Stem cells are the key. We feel Bio-banking, with an Industry leader, is the only way to make money in Stem Cells now.

It’s unique positioning and innovative infrastructure has been a magnet for firms ranging from Finance, Shipping, Energy and Healthcare.
