We invest $500k in Sci-Fi startups.
We believe Sci-Fi narratives drive innovation. When you read or watch Sci-Fi books, movies and comics, you are presented with a vision of the future that can inspire and drive progress. Our world is evolving at a rapid pace, we bet on founders who inspire us and challenge our worldview. We believe in big visions and wild ideas. We invest in technical teams using Sci-Fi technology to change the world - crypto, virtual reality, augmented reality, space tech, human augmentation, ocean tech, etc.
We are building the ecosystem of Sci-Fi visionaries and future leaders, mentors and investors, friends, peers and family. We call our co-horts “Tribes” because we are more than a community, we are family of founders. Tribes have access to office space and optional housing in San Mateo, CA. We have dinner together every week - we live, work and build all under one roof.
We believe Sci-Fi entrepreneurs are everywhere (we’ve invested in teams from 30+ countries) and we help our founders access and build a network of connections in Silicon Valley. We believe entrepreneurs come in all shapes and sizes - and we believe the best founders have diverse perspectives, growth mindsets, and the ability to solve big challenges by thinking outside-the-box.
