investment focus

Superior performance and better accuracy are just two of the many current challenges in ml/ai and teams that have made fundamental breakthroughs by putting AI at the heart of their solution, is what excites us.

Software startups that lay tomorrow’s data foundation will drive the next decade and bring astonishing results. These solutions will empower businesses and governments to make better decisions, enhance efficiency and upskill the general workforce.

Platform enablers that are scaling horizontally whilst encapsulating all needs of an enterprise client are some of the most resilient companies to be. Mastering problem solving on a horizontal layer permits companies to create an edge and transfer their skills across multiple verticals.

We believe that certain enterprise automation solutions will become a de facto standard in organisations, helping the workforce to upskill and onboard more complex tasks. The pace of automation is accelerating and more business value is generated through smart technological solutions.

Horizontal Fintech, RegTech & InsureTech firms who are able to show core competency in driving change, re-innovate and solve major obstacles are needed. We like to see firms that have the potential to turn into multi-layered tech giants servicing all needs of their clients.

Cloud technologies are enabling a new breed of fully integrated solutions into entire business processes and enables the strength of data cohesively.
Cloud-based tools and services that enhance business operations will play an increasingly significant role as the world digitses and migrates to the cloud.

We are not searching for giants that fly too close to the sun, but rather for solutions that are able to solve multiple obstacles at once and knit them together for an instinctively easier UI. A platform that services various aspects of a particular vertical (perhaps even industry) will be one of the most valuable companies of this decade.

With an increase of technological devices and general shift towards digitalisation, CyberSecurity is ever more important. Threats have become more sophisticated with entire infrastructures being vulnerable. As we are creating more and more data we start to carry larger risks. Solutions that are able to build protective infrastructures, prevent threats before they have infiltrated and push regulators to adopt new measures, is what excites us.

We are closely following the continuous unfolding of decentralisation, web3.0 infrastructure and the creator economy. By backing teams who build technical infrastructures, organisational frameworks and developer tools, we experience a generational shift in computing architecture and adjustment of organisational principles.
