We are a Venture Capital firm actively on the ground in 8 cities around the world. We partner with exceptional entrepreneurs across geographies and as early as possible. Once we commit to a team, we go to the ends of the earth to make their success global.
We’ve backed the founders behind category creators such as Segment, Sonos, Angie’s List, NGINX, Groupon, Data.ai (fka AppAnnie), Axios, Acorns, Shipt, Scopely, Farfetch, Sorare, Honeycomb, and Grin, among others.
Our team is going fast, ambitious, international, and diverse. We are looking for new investors to join our team in the US (remote) to work side by side with us and fantastic entrepreneurs.
- We are different, together. We don’t fit in, and we’ve never wanted to. As individuals, we’re looking at the world through different eyes and from different cities and cultures. And as a group, we have a global perspective unlike any other.
- We lead with generosity. We don’t steal control – or the spotlight. We welcome everyone into our office. We are fair. We don’t just do these things to be nice; we also know that our attention, time, and trust always yield the most meaningful returns.
- We lift every low - and every high. When we commit, we commit to it all. We know how to keep the faith when it’s tough. And, we know how to celebrate the victories better than anyone else.
- We invest in the world. We search every corner of the globe for teams that can make the entire world better. To us, this is much more interesting and rewarding than simply investing in companies.
