We're on a mission to power founders to go further, faster.
We believe that by providing exceptional founders with capital, expert operational
support and access to world-class corporates, we can create technology
companies that solve our world's biggest challenges.
We're an award-winning pre-seed to Series A venture studio and accelerator. To date, we've backed over 200 tech companies globally, 45+ of which we've built from scratch in our studio.
We're currently investing across multiple sectors including FinTech, Retail, Home, Healthcare, Media, Beauty, Travel & Ai & Big Data.
Entrepreneurs come from everywhere. Any background, geography, ethnicity, upbringing, or belief system. They are challenging the status quo to solve our world’s biggest problems.
We have formalised a set of Diversity Commitments to hold us accountable to this view.
