We are building a recession-resilient portfolio by investing in founders leveraging deep tech (AI, Robotics, etc.) to solve global market problems around scarcity and inefficiency - everything from farming to financial audits. Those startups that bring a diverse perspective (age, ethnicity, gender, geography, etc.) and have an intimate knowledge of the pain points they are tackling are those startups that will succeed and provide outsized returns to investors and society.
We don't invest in hits-driven businesses (gaming and other content plays) and we avoid hardcore life sciences plays (we can't add the type of value that we like). Don't be a technology in search of a market, imitation inspired, or an asshole.
