Value from values
Being an entrepreneur is not disconnected of man’s search for meaning.
People that pursue projects that are meaningful to them are more passionate, resilient and tend to have better and contrarian ideas. Those “meaningful” projects are more likely to transform the world.
Investing on teams pursuing projects which are meaningful to them we’ll deliver higher returns for our investors and make a better world.
Ours is an impact investment based on the subject (person) rather than the object (project).
We’ll find passionate entrepreneurs, encourage and help them to align their values and goals to their project so that it becomes meaningful and they become meaningful entrepreneurs.
We’ll invest time, knowledge, relations and money on them so that their project succeeds and transforms the world for better. By doing this we’ll create value for our investors and the world as a whole.
Purpose and passion should be
drivers of what we do
People are the driver on early stage
projects so we have to focus on them
We not only invest money,
we make it happen
Facts and Data
Intuitions have to be confirmed
More commitment (time and money)
where we expect higher returns
Money is invested step by step and
teams have to compete for it
We do contrarian investment and believe
in the value and risk balance created by
diverse thoughts in diverse firms
Value investing is about recognising the
problems tied in to the personal value
of the people working on the solution
We encourage our companies to donate part
of their equity to a cause of their choice.
We donate part of our hurdle and
propose our investors to do so
WE INVEST ON TEAMS
We look for people that enjoy doing what they do and know how to do it. People that find purpose and meaning on what they do and so are devoted to what they do. We look for people with great ambitions but humble enough to learn from others. People with deep convictions but flexible enough to adapt to circumstances.
EXIT AND ROI
When we evaluate an investment we think on the exit from the very beginning not only in terms of whom we will sell the company but also if we will reasonably obtain the returns we require to remunerate our investors.
We look for companies that address an important and accessible target market and that will be able to grow fast.
SEED AND PRESEED
We invest in early stage companies where we can contribute not only with money but with our knowledge, team, method and network of contacts. And most importantly helping them to align their visions so that their startups are meaningful to their lives.
We look for people that think beyond the limits and boundaries of received ideas. That have found solutions to real problems with a competitive advantage but are still looking for how to do better and how to move further.
