Our Focus

Our Focus

We are passionate about crypto, renewables, and community-focused projects.

We are active entrepreneurs turned investors focused on Web3 and Climate projects. We have a highly hands-on approach to guide founders and their companies. We get involved early and make seed investments between $25K - $50K. We care deeply about our founders and their journey. We provide our founders with high-performance coaching rooted in awareness training to ensure founder sustainability. Our focus is working alongside underrepresented founders and offer them a vantage point.
