"It's not about ideas. It's about making ideas happen" 
Scott Belsky, Behance

Building a great company takes a hint of luck, and a lot of blood, sweat and tears, but it also needs extraordinary people at the helm. We are looking for entrepreneurs that have what it takes to turn an idea into a profitable company.

Whenever it's possible and/or required, we like to connect with the founders and their teams, to provide resources and guidance. Whatever you're going through, chances are we've been there and we think we can help. 

Our initial investments range from $25,000 to $200,000 and we typically invest in companies from the idea stage, up until when the product-market fit has been proven.

You may take a look at our ongoing investments, the ones we've exited, and the ones that didn't make it as far as we hoped :)​
