ABOUT 840VP
LASERS, NOT DARTS
"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.
WHAT'S THE CONNECTION BETWEEN FINTECH AND FoW?
WHY CREATE A FUND THAT COMBINES THE TWO?
Simply put, they are two sides of the same coin:
FinTech enables people to manage their personal wealth and transact without both parties being physically present in the same location.

Future of Work technology enables people to earn a living - more efficiently, more productively, more comfortably, or in ways that they could not do otherwise.

Together, FinTech and FoW are essential elements of society, at the very core of an individual's natural aspirations to provide for themselves, their families, and often for their communities as well. That's what we want to contribute to.

FinTech and FoW share another common thread: an increasing reliance on data. In the same way that the physical library catalogues of just 30 years ago are considered primitive by today's standards, we anticipate that today's collection and usage of data will be considered primitive within a decade or two.

Because of these bonds between FinTech and FoW, combined with our professional background in these areas, a fund devoted to both verticals is a natural fit for 840VP.
