Our Strategy

With extensive experience and a global network, we share a passion for the transformative power of technology. We have a hands-on approach and back committed entrepreneurs leading businesses which we believe will grow quickly through geographical expansion and product development.

As a truly Global investor, a crucial point in our investment thesis is the ability of a business model and a team to quickly scale up across different regions. We support our portfolio companies in their journey with our local teams in Europe, USA and Latam.

We typically invest $1m to $3m in companies which are already generating revenue and have the potential for rapid growth. We offer multi stage VC solutions to be able to follow on the investments that we back.
