How we’re different
Market before Solution
We believe our market-first approach and strict investment protocols are the surest way to secure exponential growth opportunities while mitigating the biggest risks investing in deep technology.
Solutions for Today
We’re not in the business of predicting the future. We don’t take on R&D risks with unknown horizons. We invest in scalable technologies primed to meet existing market demand.
We are the most rigorous manager in VC because the sectors we invest in require it. Our managing partners and GPs include financial analysts, operators, industrialists, and PhD technologists with deep subject-matter expertise.
