Our Philosophy

In our hearts we're entrepreneurs, and we bring this lens to everything we do. We believe great investing means battling alongside founders to overcome every obstacle in their path.

Think big

“Make no little plans” is our motto — a mandate to support revolutionary (not evolutionary) ideas that transform industries and benefit society.

Be technology agnostic

Rather than chase the hottest trends, we seek to understand vexing market problems and partner with driven entrepreneurs building the best solutions.

Make a difference

We believe innovation and entrepreneurship are the most powerful catalysts of positive change, from making healthier foods more affordable, to curing deadly diseases, to improving healthcare outcomes.

Take the Viking approach

When the Vikings landed on the beach, they burned their own boats — it was do or die. We take the same approach with our companies; we invest early and stay for the long haul.

Get our hands dirty

Our style of in-the-trenches venture capital doesn’t scale. We make fewer than ten new investments per year so we have time to roll up our sleeves with each team in our portfolio. Our job is to help provide experience, insight, and relationships that accelerate our companies’ success.
