Investing globally has always been our instinct.
Since launching our Early Stage and Growth Funds in San Francisco, we’ve established Early Stage funds in Asia, Europe, and South America. We created these funds to lead rounds at every stage, in every geography.
We are actively on the ground across continents, seeing local trends up close, searching for top founders, and bringing them our world of resources. Once we commit to a team, we go to the ends of the earth – connecting entrepreneurs to each other, to customers, and to insights from distant markets – to help them become a global success.
Our Guiding Principles
Be different, together
Lift every low, and every high
Lead with generosity
Invest in the world
