We back founders attacking high-impact problems in the real world

WHO WE ARE

We believe in entrepreneurs using advanced technology or unique market insight to tackle massive challenges in the real-world, across themes like resource efficiency, human health, urbanization and more. We invest at a stage when institutional capital in our focus areas is often in short supply. We look for mission-driven founders with deep domain expertise, we believe diverse teams drive stronger outcomes and we know intensely product-centric cultures are essential to redefine a large market or create an entirely new one.

 
 

WHAT WE DO

We invest early - making our initial investment in a company’s seed or pre-seed round with additional capital reserved for follow-on. We typically lead or co-lead our investments, but we're happy to join a syndicate of high-quality investors when we have a shared vision and bring complementary value. We take an active, hands-on approach to supporting our founders through this formative period of building a great team, crafting an early strategy, finding product/market fit and ultimately preparing for a larger institutional financing.
