  • Technologists We are technologists with deep backgrounds in embedded systems, AI, autonomy, and silicon.
  • Seed Investors We are seed investors deploying capital at early stages to help incubate your ideas and build your team.
  • Value-Add Advisors We are value-add advisors who help with strategy, technology, business development, and recruiting.
  • Founders We are founders; like the entrepreneurs we invest in, we have put everything on the line for this venture.
  • Connected We are connected to a deep network of great engineers, leaders, operators, and corporate partners whom we have worked with for decades.
  • Experienced Operators We are experienced operators from our careers at Kleiner Perkins, Tesla, BMW, Intel, and DJI.

We invest in companies at the intersection of hardware, embedded systems, and software. Leveraging the synergies between these domains can enable innovations that otherwise would not be possible. We look for founders who create a competitive advantage with interdisciplinary thinking.

We believe in solving pain points in existing markets, and in the potential of emerging markets. In either case, we dive deep to analyze the unit economics of the business considering the full life cycle of the product.
