sauf s'il est orienté produit
Explanation:
or "sauf orientation produit".
The subject of "s'il" is the investment or the project.
"orienté produit" is a "calque" from the Anglo expression, and is much used in IT lingo (in France at least).
As an alternative, you could put "sauf s'il est centré sur le produit".
But I prefer the "calque".
