Empowering individuals and the enterprise with A.I.
We are an early-stage venture fund that invests in game-changing ideas and the entrepreneurs behind them — leaders with ingenuity, grit, and devotion who build companies that last. We help our CEOs and their teams accelerate their path to market and scale their businesses by bringing a deep bench of operators and technologists.
Our fund follows proven rules.
We ignore the hype and focus on the basics — it’s what allows us to consistently deliver investor returns in record time.
Everyone has great ideas, but the path from idea to execution is anything but predictable. What makes or breaks a company’s ability to hit the market at the right time with the right solution isn’t the idea du jour, but the intelligence, capacity, drive, and ambition of the team to innovate. We help build real companies and accelerate their path to liquidity.
We look for companies that have the potential to grow and scale, solving unmet needs with novel ideas and technologies in growing markets of $10B or more that have not been over-invested. We vet the teams, technologies, and business model to ensure a clear path to market and the capability to stand on their own, and we enable them to become self-funding as early as possible.
What we know
We’ve been working for decades with data, devices, and analytics across industries and enterprises—experiences that give us an unfair advantage when it comes to investing in the transformational world of A.I. We have a nose for spotting disruptive ideas and stellar teams who can execute using A.I. to solve real problems, drive real value for the enterprise, and deliver real returns to investors.
Our team has done this before.
Our bench strength includes veteran entrepreneurs and business builders, heavyweight A.I. technologists, and an enviable deal network.
