We are passionate about working closely with exceptional entrepreneurs building brilliant companies.

Who we are.

We are entrepreneurs, researchers, ex-suits, and above all, passionate doers. We happily roll up our sleeves when needed and work through challenges with our portfolio companies. Having been through the whole lifecycle of a company, from both sides of the table (more than once), we are likely to understand the types of challenges that you may face, and are committed to helping you through the roller coaster.

An enthusiastic team of seasoned professionals with holistic experience in operations and finance, means that there is always someone who can ask the right questions. And if we feel like more expertise is required, our community of experienced entrepreneurs, opinion leaders, executives, and innovators (aka our extended family) are only a phone call away.

In essence, the only meaningful reference an investor has, is his/her portfolio companies’ experience of working together over time. Therefore, we encourage you to talk to the entrepreneurs with whom we have partnered so far, and get their views on what it’s like to work with us.

We are entrepreneurs, researchers, ex-suits, and above all, passionate doers.
