Our Philosophy

We partner with entrepreneurs who share our passion for industry-changing ideas.

We roll up our sleeves to help exciting companies reach their potential.

We believe it is fundamentally unfair for only the ultra-rich to be able to invest in emerging and disruptive companies.

Why Now?


The financial services “operating system” is changing

  • Numerous opportunities exist for disruptive innovation and new company growth
  • Established players must transform large segments of their businesses in order to remain competitive
  • How? Through acquisition


Capital markets were the first to be disrupted

  • Electronic marketplaces
  • Data-driven research
  • Portfolio management
  • Large-scale data processing


These same dynamics are being applied to other sectors

  • Crowdfunding
  • Media and information
  • Marketplaces and payments
  • Real estate
  • Privacy / cyber security
  • Venture capital
