We Seed & Syndicate Entrepreneurial Inspiration Across The GlobeTM
Who We Are: A new (but experienced) stage-agnostic technology-focused venture capital fund focused on financing and cross-pollinating leading technologies, teams and business models.
Our View: In our eyes, the world is flat. So we have no geographic boundaries when it comes to investing in the best companies and assisting amazing entrepreneurial teams to build, deliver, and manage awesome products & services that matter to global audiences. Segments of interest include internet, consumer, media, mobile and semantic technology-based platforms and applications.
Why You Want To Work With Us: We absolutely love what we do; we are super passionate about it; still get goose bumps about pursuing change-the-world opportunities with amazing entrepreneurs and teams; we are 'shadow warriors' who understand how hard it is to build great companies; focus on putting in behind-the-scenes reps; don't care about being celebrity VCs (so wont spend a lot of time being profiled in the media or writing interminably long blog posts); and don't believe in 'social proof' as a key element of our decision support architecture. In exchange, we'll partner with you and look to take near-material stakes in companies that matter.
What You Can Bet On: Like all great entrepreneurs, we are orthogonal thinkers and we don't flinch.
