CBT is a fully owned subsidiary of Cape Bouvard Investments Pty Ltd with the primary focus on investing in and co-developing high growth potential technologies.
We achieve these goals via expertise in engineering, IP protection/valuation and technology commercialisation, combined with sound financial management and provision of capital.
Key CBT Executive Personnel has contributed to and enjoyed major technological breakthroughs and IP marketing successes globally. Its proprietor pioneered a novel combustion technology, which was described to the NASA in the 1980’s by expert US consultants “as the cutting edge of world engine technology”. These engine technologies produced superior fuel economy and emissions, which have contributed to today’s vehicle performances.
By drawing together highly experienced staff from a number of other successful entities founded by the proprietor, the current expansion initiative can be approached with considerable confidence of a successful outcome.
