Investments

Portfolio Companies

We are proud to invest in the leading venture-backed companies driving the global economy forward. Whether our firm joins as a primary investor or through a secondary transaction, we support the entrepreneurs running these businesses without distracting management from their primary objectives.

Venture Funds

Being both a limited partner in venture funds and a co-investor, we offer unique support to GPs over the life-cycle of the fund. We offer primary commitments at inception, early secondary purchases, tail-end restructurings and wind down, and secondary direct purchases to provide liquidity for top companies to ensure executive teams can go the distance to final exit. As a collaborative investor, we do not have preset ownership or investment amounts; and we are often invited by well-functioning boards to lead rounds as we do not require a seat.
