We are Backers

From idea-stage through growth, we are fueling a new future.


We invest in entrepreneurial ideas that hold the key to creating a better future.

With three ways to invest, our goal is to put the power of technology in the hands of more people, build up communities and create things that lead to the kind of society where prosperity is widely shared. We invest in counter-cultural thinkers with ideas that do just that.
We don't just disrupt. We disrupt to democratize.
