What we do

We generate, source, refine and validate great ideas. We create ventures and set them for growth. We own and guide. We don’t buy, or operate.

Find out how you can work with us.

Why we do it

We’re passionate about creating value through entrepreneurship, and…Statistics show that fully validated ventures require specialist growth teams to succeed. 

42% of startups fail due to poor market fit (poorly validated), and 4 out of 5 founders are ultimately forced by investors to step aside for growth (wrong skill set).

Who we are

A collaboration of smart and experienced entrepreneurs, conceptual creatives, adventurous executives, marketing experts, corporate finance gurus, investors and tech enthusiasts.
