The future isn’t built by dreamers. It’s built today, by doers. It’s crafted by people who live on the edge of cultural trends and understand where things are heading. Building tomorrow is the work of many hands and minds, not one person alone. And the future hinges on the support of a partner who understands that. At Lightspeed we believe tomorrow is built today.
Our mission is to serve the world’s most extraordinary people who are building tomorrow’s companies today.
BE ONE LIGHTSPEED
We are at our best as a global team. We put the team before individual egos, and share wins and learn from our misses to make us better. We think beyond borders and limits, and move together proudly.
Question and challenge each other, but focus on the merit of the idea instead of the person raising it. Diverse perspectives give us broader perspectives. Once the decision is set, be accountable to it.
CREATE AN IMPACT
We maximize our efforts when we find extraordinary people, companies, and ideas. We move decisively, and focus our capital. We operate like an owner because they sweat the small stuff, and so do we.
PUT PEOPLE FIRST
Reputation is built from the inside out. We practice empathy and respect each other, and ourselves. We hold each other accountable, and accountability is everyone’s responsibility.
We always have been and always will be challengers. We keep the underdog’s perspective, stay hungry, and fight to win. We stay humble and work like we have something to prove.
