Founders

First

Founders are uniquely capable of 
influencing the success of their business. We build long-term relationships and partner their 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.

Human Impact Equals ROI And IOI

We believe, the larger and more meaningful the human impact of the investment, the greater the probability of outsized ROI and IOI (Impact on Investment).
