We back the world's boldest tech founders
A VC with a Higher Purpose
Our higher purpose is to catalyze emerging tech ecosystems by backing future success stories led by role model founders.
Nothing catalyzes a tech ecosystem like a success story. Success multiplies as more investors crowd in and the team goes on to fund and found the next unicorns - like the "PayPal Mafia" did in Silicon Valley.
Catalyzing Unicorns, Not Aid
We believe in the power of tech unicorns to create millions of jobs, put food on the table, and transform a nation.
