Coolisys’ products are designed to serve mission critical applications in the harshest environments and for life-saving and life-sustaining applications across diverse markets.

DPW Financial Group, led by its CEO, Darren Magot, will focus on lending through its subsidiary, Digital Power Lending (“DP Lending”), as well as investing in new initiatives. As part of the realignment, DPW Financial Group will hold the Company’s investments in life sciences, materials science, e-commerce and hospitality companies, including internally incubated companies.
