ABOUT

REINVENTING VENTURE CAPITAL THROUGH ACTIVE CORPORATE COLLABORATION

Whether it’s pre-seed, seed, or Series A, we’re investing in some of the world’s greatest up-and-coming AI founders who are just getting started. Alongside top corporate venture groups, we work feverishly to identify, capitalize, and support the next generation of world-class artificial intelligence startups. Our founders are solving big problems, so we do all we can to accelerate their growth. With corporate, research, and government partners on hand, we empower entrepreneurs to dream big, . . . And to execute. 

WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN FOUNDERS

We are ambitious, empathetic, competitive, ethical, gritty, passionate, great listeners, prudent risk takers and have a wicked sense humor. We look for founders that share these characteristics. We believe that in order to win, these traits are not just “nice to have”, but are paramount!

We add value to our startups on day one by connecting them to the right people at the right time. We partner with corporates, CVCs and policymakers to help empower the startup, accelerate growth, and navigate gridlock.

VALUE BEYOND CAPITAL

We deliberately assembled our team to take advantage of our investment thesis and maximize the value we add to our portfolio companies.

Our investment committee has deep experience in corporate venture capital, entrepreneurship, traditional venture investing, academia, and public policy.  This allows us to add value in several key ways:

  1. Our corporate relationships deliver exceptional co-investment opportunities, complete with powerful market insight and accelerated exit opportunities.
  2. Our empathy for founders and the entrepreneurial journey allows us to anticipate the pitfalls founders face and de-risk investment opportunities.  Our networks are a shot in the arm to early-stage founders.
  3. Our understanding of the forces shaping technology and industry today helps us foresee great investment opportunities others might miss.
