What’s your thesis?

Imagine a world in which you decide not only your career, but have the influence to unleash hordes of smart & ambitious talent on a problem. There are a billion problems out there. If you’re trying to , placing your bets is a heavy decision

“We invest in Seed and Series A companies developing drugs for aging and age-related diseases”
–Longevity Fund

“We invest in visionary yet practical high-growth startups addressing the multi-billion dollar space markets that will both enable and benefit from the space revolution.”
–Space Fund

“Our mission is to increase the GDP of the internet”
–Stripe



What does this have to do with you?
