About Us

We Dare to Dream Big

We invest in, support and nourish the world’s leading scientific discoveries and commercialize them into viable businesses as quickly as possible.

Our team possesses an extraordinary passion to have a huge impact on our world through the creation of companies that will improve our lives and that of the generations that will follow. We aim to do this by backing the very best scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs and help them transform their knowledge, ideas and discoveries into viable businesses. We expect these companies to have a huge impact on the world and create significant returns for their shareholders.

We invest early, often during the formative stages of a company, and work closely with the world’s leading scientists to commercialize their technologies. Depending on the stage of development and the capital requirements of each venture, we make investments between $150,000 and $20 Million. While we are hands-on investors, we also recognize that it is the entrepreneurs’ sweat, hard work and perseverance that will drive the growth of their companies. Hence, we strive to ensure that the founding team, who make the early sacrifices in pursuit of their venture, retain the majority of the ownership in their companies.

In addition to providing early-stage capital, we leverage our expertise and extensive network of professionals specializing in all disciplines required to build a successful company, including legal, finance, marketing, operations, business development and HR. We provide these services to early stage companies in our portfolio to allow the entrepreneurs to focus their energy on continuing to innovate and pushing the envelope in their respective fields.

Ultimately, what unites us with the founders of our portfolio companies and the investors in our fund is the belief that world class scientists, backed by the right investors, can have a significant impact on our world.
