Investment Philosophy

Our investment philosophy, "Applied Emerging Technology", guides our approach to the market. We are focused on the industrial and enterprise applications of frontier and emerging technologies. 

The founders we seek to work alongside are passionate, curious, capable in their respective fields and seek to apply that passion and talent towards solving the world's most challenging problems. 

We are a true seed and early-stage investment firm and like to take substantive positions in a company's first outside capital raise.  We aren't afraid to lead, and will happily co-invest with partners whose engagement level is on par with our own. 

After our initial investment, we intend to 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.
