We are founders, investors and builders with decades of experience.
We have started our own businesses. We have sat on hundreds of Advisory boards. We have run accelerator programmes for years.
In short, we know our stuff.
And we’re also supported by our backers, and the teams of the technologies you choose to build on. There will be no greater support network to start.
