What We Do

We believe the world is changing faster than ever.

We are an early-stage venture capital firm investing in transformative companies harnessing information growth and computing power to change the world.

We believe the most important companies of the future will be the product of three forces: the exponentially increasing availability of information; rapid advancements in the science of computing; and the ingenuity of visionary founders.

We have seen the information + computing + people thesis transform the business of investment management, and we support companies applying it to other industries.
