Platypus is now liquidating its funds and returning capital to investors. When this is done, its four partners will take much of the remainder of 2009 off to “rest and research” and consider further ideas, such as finding an incubator to partner with. “We may look to rebuild provided we are able to obtain the patronage of a suitable ‘big brother’ who can assist us with marketing, compliance and business risk issues.” Their ideas should be known in the fourth quarter, Talbot said.
