Our investment philosophy, "Applied Frontier", guides our approach to the market. We are focused on the industrial and enterprise applications of frontier and emerging technologies, but will evaluate interesting opportunities with great founders as they arise.
The founders we seek are passionate, curious, capable in their respective fields and seek to apply that passion and talent towards solving the world's most challenging problems. Our fund also has a focus on supporting underrepresented technology founders (age, race, gender, ethnicity) who align around the main thesis of '“Applied Frontier.”
We are a true pre-seed/seed-stage investment firm and like to take substantive positions in a company's first outside capital raise. We are not opposed to leading, and happily co-invest with partners whose engagement level is on par with our own.
After our initial investment, we intend to usually follow-on up and through the first growth round -- we're in it for the long haul and through the ups and downs. We are fellow founders and entrepreneurs ourselves, and try to add value when needed.
