Our Approach

We are a team of experienced investors that believe that founders have the potential to change the world for the better. We are hands-on investors and there for our founders when the going gets tough. Having been founders ourselves and built businesses across multiple segments like financial services, media, and healthcare, we know it is anything but easy.

We are strong believers in coachable founders who understand the importance of GTM (Go-To-Market) execution. So much so, that we created an invitation-only network for high potential founders to find the best GTM experts to accelerate growth.

What do we look for?

We are very early-stage investors with the ability to follow on and support our founders in their journey. Although Pre-Seed can mean Pre-Product and Pre-Revenue, we like to see defined GTM strategies and strong examples of customer development. If you have a product with paying customers, and have not raised funding, we welcome you to a conversation.

What Do We Invest in?

We understand the B2B startup journey and actively discover compelling investment opportunities around the world. We seek the very best founders innovating across these verticals, pushing the boundaries of technology across horizontals, such as:

1. Artificial Intelligence
2. Research and Engineering-led Deeptech

Whilst every investor looks to invest in repeat founders, we also support first time founders.
