We’re looking for founders
We offer unique, market-making business opportunities
We are a lean operation. We prefer expertise and diverse strengths focused on a small number of companies. We are just as hungry, just as humble, and just as focused as our startup founders. Our extraordinary network takes care of the rest.
We identify non-obvious, market-changing business opportunities and collaborate with outstanding founders. We then launch startups jointly that address business problems at least 5X better than the status quo.
Logistics is a huge industry. Most existing business models haven’t yet been reinvented by software. We have compiled a list of logistics startups. Their number is rapidly increasing.
We’ve been founders ourselves. If there is one thing we want to maximize, then it’s our founders’ long-term motivation. We want to offer the most professional and most rewarding conditions for outstanding entrepreneurs.
