"The only thing that is constant is change." —Heraclitus, Greek philosopher circa 500 BC.
Change. Progress. Innovation. There is no arguing that in the present day, technology is driving innovation at an accelerating pace — some contend that it is expanding exponentially
We, as investors, as founders, as technophiles, have two options:
1. Sit on the sidelines; OR
2. Roll up our sleeves and get our hands dirty. We choose the latter.
We choose to invest in technologies that enrich peoples' lives. There are 70 million underbanked Americans — that needs to change
. That's WHY we invested in Petal Card
We choose to invest in technologies that support wealth-building via social information-sharing and transparency — NOT as a zero-sum game
. That's WHY we invested in Public
We choose to invest in companies which enable more productive, efficient, and self-actualizing work. That's WHY we invested in Ontraport
We choose to invest in technologies which empower people to transact and benefit from their own intellectual property in ways not previously imagined. That's WHY we invested in Mintable
We choose to invest in technologies that we know and understand. Technologies that we ourselves use on a daily basis.
We believe that the power of technology can rest in its simplicity. The simplest solutions are often the most impactful and enduring. We invest in FinTech and Future of Work because they're what we know, live, and love.
They're what we've done our entire professional lives and where we have seen our greatest success. As the world "shrinks", and the rate of innovation accelerates, there is no other area to which we'd rather commit our efforts.
