For Founders
What do we offer?

We build partnerships with talented entrepreneurs, helping them execute their business models. These partnerships are not just limited to equity financing; we can offer all the resources of our team, partners and investors to turn their ideas of our entrepreneur partners into market leading companies.

In addition to providing equity financing, we can offer founders the following help in building their businesses:

  • Bring in professional knowledge and specialized expertise from around the world
  • Generate new business opportunities using our access to various global networks of entrepreneurs and executives in the United States, Europe, and Asia Pacific
  • Help structure domestic and international strategic partnerships
  • Help our portfolio companies raise follow on financing using our extensive global network of technology investors
  • Use our experience and relationships to organize a successful exit
What do we look for?

We are looking to invest in startups which meet all or most of the following criteria:

  • The business addresses a large multi-billion dollar total addressable market. This may mean addressing a large existing market or a market which will likely become large in the next 10 years. It’s ok to start with a smaller market segment if there is a credible strategy to expand
  • The business has actual or potential network effects in its business model. We believe that network effects create strong barriers to entry for competition in technology companies
  • The founding team has relevant experience and respect for investors’ capital
  • We can invest in pre-revenue businesses with strong user growth, engagement and retention
  • We tend to avoid businesses with large capital requirements. We also do not invest in traditional e-commerce (sales of physical goods), advertising technology, gaming, and hardware companies


For blockchain or distributed ledger technology (DLT) companies, we also look for:

  • Teams that are product-focused and have a long-term horizon
  • Distributed ledger technology must add real and critical business value to the product
  • For infrastructure/protocol investments, we look for projects supported by the developer community
