Who We Are

We are the next generation Venture Capital fund. We are believers in a more diversified approach to Venture Capital and in opening up access to more investors. We are supporters of the next generation of venture funds and backers of the best technology companies. We are not afraid to be different.

Why We're Different

Rather than focus only on long-standing venture fund managers, we believe there is a significant opportunity for investment in emerging fund managers. In many cases, these fund managers have proven to achieve incredible access to the best founders, often driving outsized returns.

For our investors, we believe more people should have access to the venture capital asset class, not just a select few. We make the process educational and inclusive for you.
