Why these companies?
We’ve invested in so many great teams across a range of industries from fin-tech to SaaS to IoT security, and from data APIs to virtual reality. While we are broad in our focus, one thing ties all the companies together — we back ambitious teams solving genuine problems that enhance the way we live and work.
Over the next ten years we’ll encounter waves of unprecedented changes. We’re looking to back the companies that will be at the front of this, either directly or by enabling it to happen by building the infrastructure, networks or tools to make it work.
