The creative spirits. The underdogs. The resolute. The determined. The doers. Independent thinkers. The fighters and true believers – These are the founders with whom we partner.
They’re extremely unique, and we’re ecstatic when we find them, we partner early—sometimes when a company has a product but is still looking towards the global market from a local perspective. We know these crucial first decisions can have an exponential influence on the curve of success.
Our style is not for everyone. We push when we see the potential. We are direct. Some don’t like our approach. Most who know us do. We value teamwork over showmanship. Our contribution to a company always comes from the group and several of us working together.
Our team is small. We prefer a few people with diverse strengths focused on a small number of companies, and we are always mindful of lessons learned — some painfully — that are eternal truths.
Our network is strong. Our advantage comes from the partners and group trust by multinationals corporate and the experience with startups in the last decades.
We’re serious about our work, and carefully choose the words to describe it. Terms like “deal” or “exit” are forbidden. And while we’re sometimes called investors, that is not our frame of mind. We consider ourselves partners for the long term. We help the daring build legendary companies!
