Our Mission

We invest in people, not companies.

We believe in backing our portfolio company founders all the way from idea to IPO and beyond, enabling them to realize their full potential.

We put founders first.

We aim to be as helpful and responsive as possible to our portfolio company founders, providing them with timely assistance and valuable advice.

We empathize with founders.

Being founders ourselves, we appreciate the enormous difficulty of bringing a new and successful business into existence, so we strive to be the type of partner that we would also like to work with.

We treat founders with integrity.

We aspire to the highest standards of ethics and integrity, including being honest, transparent, and fair with our portfolio company founders regardless of the circumstances.

We care about the mission.

We are passionate about backing mission-driven founders and helping each of them build massively successful businesses that have outsized impacts on their global communities.

We focus on the long term.

We like to partner with founders who optimize for long-term success rather than short-term gain, empowering each of them to build enduring market-leading businesses that prosper for decades or even centuries.

Investment Themes

Web3 & Blockchain

Web3 technologies have already led to the creation of a $2tr+ decentralized financial system with hundreds of millions of users, yet these technologies are still early in their adoption S-curve. As these technologies become more accessible and trust in centralized institutions further erodes, new decentralized autonomous organizations and applications will emerge and become extremely valuable.

AI & Enterprise Transformation

Machine learning, process digitization, and cloud adoption will eliminate mindless, repetitive work, enabling people and organizations to be more efficient and productive.

Next-Gen Financial Technology

The ubiquity of mobile devices is enabling the unbundling of banks and democratizing access to financial services. Meanwhile, incumbent financial institutions are turning to new technology platforms to disrupt their businesses from within.

Computational Biology & Digital Health

Applications at the intersection of data, software, and health will change the way that new treatments are discovered and care is provided.

Future of Commerce & Entertainment

New platforms will emerge across commerce and entertainment that will change the way that people shop, game, and consume content.

Other Big Ideas

Beyond the above themes, we always look to partner with founders in both developed and emerging markets who have bold, compelling visions for the future and who are solving massive problems in novel, scalable ways using transformational technologies.
