The last decades the VC and PE industry have progressed into serious drivers of innovation. However, with the growth of the industry negative incentivizing became prevalent and put a serious halt to the horizontal investments needed in order to create an ecosystem in which innovation can flourish.
We all know that the world as we know it is on the precipice of a tipping point. Various reports show that our current resource allocation on a global scale is off. We need to become more innovative in every aspect, else mankind will be forced to make imperfect and unwanted trade-offs in order to protect our way of living.
Entrepreneurship, innovation and education are the most effective tools in order to overcome the global challenges ahead of us. Simply investing money into ventures will surely lead to a sub optimal capital allocation and underperforming portfolios. We believe collaboration across the value chain is needed in order to create lasting global impact, which we deploy in our investment strategy.
