I'm very excited to announce that Ambassador Frank Wisner - who has served as US Ambassador to India, Egypt, the Philippines, and Zambia - has joined the Romulus family as an Advisor for Global Affairs. In this role, he will help our firm and its portfolio companies live...

I met Faizal Kottikollon in Dubai in 2013. He struck me immediately as an anomaly. How could someone who had been so successful - building a multi-billion dollar manufacturing business out of Dubai - also be so humble and so passionate about his new project? This new...
