Thin Air Labs Fund 1:
Investing for Impact 

We are raising a $100M venture fund to invest in early-stage, entrepreneur-led innovation and technology ventures generating meaningful returns and impact on investment. 

“Our strength is exclusively investing in early-stage companies and assisting them with business formation, product development and initial market traction.”

JAMES LOCHRIE, MANAGING/CAPITAL PARTNER

Investment Thesis

Founders first. Founders are uniquely capable of influencing the success of their business. We build long-term relationships by partnering their vision and expertise with ours. 

Invest at the earliest stages. To generate 100x returns we invest early when most investors deem ventures too risky. We help founders gain traction and follow institutional investors in later rounds.

Diversified industries and global market potential. We look at innovative technologies across a number of sectors with global market potential.

We invest at both the venture and ecosystem levels. This de-risks and accelerates the innovation process, increasing a venture’s probability of generating outsized returns.

Return on investment is driven by the size of the impact on humans. We believe, the larger and more meaningful the human impact of the investment, the greater the probability of outsized ROI.
