Thesis

We evaluate startup companies as complex, adaptive systems on a case by case basis. At the same time we developed a thesis to articulate what we care about most and where we see outsized opportunities for entrepreneurs. It serves us as a high level framework of thought. As societal and technological inflection points continue to form, so does our thesis.

 
 

We are a team of venture investors and entrepreneurs based in Berlin, London, Boston and Denver. We worked with or founded companies such as Google, Earlybird VC, Index Ventures, Linux Foundation, Canonical, Shapeshift, Taulia, Centrifuge and Greensill. A network of innovators with various backgrounds and shared values is complementing us.

We take bold bets based on high conviction in very early stages (first check to pre Series A). We cover European markets first but have a global mandate.

 

Providing the best possible long term support for entrepreneurs lies at the heart of everything we do. We value excellence, transparency and commitment to a bold but realistic version of the future. "Which school did you go to", „You are too early“ or „Who else is investing“ are sentences you won’t hear from us.

About

We are a team of venture investors and entrepreneurs based in Berlin, London, Boston and Denver.

A network of innovators with various backgrounds and shared values is complementing us.

We take concentrated positions with high conviction in very early stages (first check to pre Series A). We are innovating for the long haul, not for short term hype. We cover European markets first but have a global mandate.

 

We work with founders radical visions - innovators, rebels, the round pegs in the square holes. People who do things differently.
