We are a group of entrepreneurs dedicated to developing the next generation of entrepreneurs by providing funding, resources, mentorship, and access to our global network. We are in the business of building businesses. Our approach is twofold: we either partner with existing companies to assist with distribution and scaling or we internally innovate from idea generation through to launch and exit.
