We invest in high growth, early-stage companies that leverage technologies and digitization to create societal benefit, efficiency, and scale aligned with the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
We are a community of founders, operators, and investors with deep domain expertise, diverse networks, and a desire to help innovative companies grow.
We look for massive markets that are well-timed and companies with high growth, reasonable valuations, and impact. We will focus on investments from ACTAI Global and Extreme Tech Challenge but not be limited to those communities.
Digitization and data science are remaking many industries because they lower friction and usage cost and enable replicability and scalability. Digitization allows for the virtualization of physical assets and more efficient asset utilization. Some of these concepts are eloquently articulated by Bill Tai in a Medium post on “Currency in the 4th Industrial Revolution” from 2018.
We also believe technology innovation is borderless, which means great companies can come from anywhere! One of the first companies coming out of the Extreme Tech Challenge was Canva in 2015, which was seeded from the ACTAI Global community.
The need for unified and coordinated initiatives to support (primarily digital) innovation as a catalyst for growth within an overarching framework of sustainability has accelerated as economies shift from being based on oil to electrons.
We are excited to partner with founders who are making a huge impact and provide them with the social and financial capital they need!
