About Us

We are hands-on seed investors grown out of startup entrepreneurs.

The story

After we had gone through what startup hassle is all about and built business models that actually work (GateMe and Thorgate), we have decided to invest the extra capital gained in teams whose spirit and execution power is similar to ours.

The mission

Our mission is to use technology to make the world a better place. We are looking for teams that have a balance of team culture, passion, and rationality, and execution power. We believe that the right people together can build great businesses.

How We Invest

We invest in teams we would like to work together with.
