Supporting
resilient
founders

Our goal is to be the first person the entrepreneur reaches out to in times of trouble and joy.

We are a sector agnostic early-stage (pre-seed and seed) investor that wants to partner with founders from the very beginning of their journey and support them throughout their growth. Our team has global experience in building and scaling companies both as founders and in various CxO roles. We invest in ambitious and determined teams that can one day become industry leaders.
