We are looking for missions that bring us alive – those that are so motivating we’d have considered joining full-time. We aren’t going to be a detached financier – we’ll only invest when your mission matters to one of us personally and we are compelled to do everything in our power to further your mission.
We will each take on a tiny number of projects each year – 2-3 typically. For each company we partner with, we are able to spend up to a day a week if you need it. You can rely on us to be close enough to deeply understand what is happening with your business and proactively support you vs just turn up to board meetings. For each startup we back we draw up an SLA so we can hold ourselves accountable to being the best possible partner to you.
As a group we have worked with over 10% of the European start-ups valued at over $1b.
I’ve always enjoyed exploring possible futures by reading science fiction. I find it super motivating that what we build today will determine whether we inhabit a better future. I’m drawn to founders that can see a big underlying shift happening, be it in technology or simply in behaviour change, and who harness that for a great outcome. To me a better future includes: a fairer, more truthful internet, healing our climate, upgrading human health and more widespread economic opportunities.
