We’re an early-stage venture capital fund investing in startups that invent technology to maximize humanity’s creative potential. As society shifts from a paradigm of consumption to a paradigm of creation, Silicon Valley remains stubbornly focused on the commodification of content. By contrast, we see a historic moment for value creation in human-centered creativity platforms.Our investment thesis is focused on customers, markets, and use cases. Within that niche, however, we are able to invest across a wide range of industries and regions. Portfolio companies fall into three broad categories:
Core Innovation in Frontier Tech — technology that makes wholly new forms of creative expression possible or radically lowers barriers of access to existing systems.
Tools and Platforms — products that expand opportunities for creativity, with a particular emphasis on casual creatives and indie artists.
Networks and Marketplaces — platforms that connect creatives throughout the developing world to global customers and markets.
