A SECTOR-FOCUSED VENTURE FUND
We are early-stage investors and look to strike a balance between traction and a favourable valuation, typically investing in pre-seed and seed rounds with technology companies that we believe have the potential to disrupt the Human Capital technology sector on a global scale. Our strategy is to source off-market opportunities through our founder network and take early risk in businesses, investing where we can add significant value through applying and sharing the combined experience that our team has in founding, scaling and exiting companies
As the pace of workforce transformation and adoption accelerates, we believe there is a window of opportunity for early-stage investment into human capital technologies that will support businesses across all regions and industries achieve the vision for the future of work, ranging from the development of new applications for the gig economy to the adoption of common skills taxonomies across business and education.
Thematic Venture Capital
As HR technology shifts the boundary between the work performed by people and the work by machines and algorithms, companies are rapidly adopting new and emerging technologies to reach higher levels of employee efficiency and to compete with a global workforce composed increasingly of digital natives.
We believe this change provides an opportunity for companies to expand labour productivity across industries, and to shift the axis of competition from a focus on automation-based labour cost reduction to an ability to leverage technologies as tools to complement and enhance human labour. Two core themes guide our investment activity;
1 – HUMAN CAPITAL ANALYTICS – Innovative digital technologies that produce next-generation business intelligence to drive business value and competitive advantage.
2 – THE FUTURE OF WORK – Artificial intelligence, machine learning and cognitive technologies that have a profound impact on jobs, the labour market and the workplace.
