Talent-Driven Investor for Lifetime Innovation
We invest in ambitious entrepreneurs to create businesses with lasting impact
We are currently standing at a historic crossroad. The Industrial Revolution has significantly transformed humanity, where we live longer while producing and consuming more. The large-scale industrialization, however, has brought us some negative consequences, widening economic gaps and endangering planetary health.
Together with our ambitious entrepreneurs, we strive to co-create the next revolutionary wave of innovative solutions to enable both humans and our planet to prosper for generations to come.
