A decade ago, startling reports emerged, detailing negative mental health trends among young people worldwide. Through extensive research, we identified key factors we believed were contributing to this shift: the competition created by the internet, a decline in religious beliefs, and paradoxically, a decline in tactile friction. We thought that individuals would naturally seek solace and escape into digital worlds.
Coincidentally, a wave of cutting-edge technologies was rising, paving the way for deeper and more immersive digital experiences.
Often, new technologies are used to build regressive experiences. Every once in a while; however, a unique mind at the right time can invent, build, or simply act on a theory that creates a previously unknowable experience and empowers humanity to fly. We spend our days foraging for these aliens and are honored to serve as hands on partners to teams navigating the unfathomable, unfeasible, and uncharted.
We focus on partnering with entrepreneurs as early as possible and increasing the quantum of capital invested with them as our trust in both the commercial vision and management team grows. We primarily invest in the United States with a specific focus on the ecosystems surrounding the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City.
What We Invest In
We believe that the quality of your life is the quality of your questions, and company-building is no different. We love to combine our unbounded optimism with radical open-mindedness and a heavy dose of Cartesian doubt to make contact with the base realities of the past, present, and future. And of course, trust is the enabling agent for any and all other value to flow in a partnership.
