TO MASSIVE MARKETS
Conventional wisdom leads to the same dead ends. Disruption derived from non-linear thought solving quantifiable market problems leads to exponential wealth creation.
Great founders inspire those around them to produce beyond their existing potential. We back leaders with a demonstrated ability to recruit best-in-class talent and extract high returns from their team members.
Tuhaye’s investment team brings over 40 years of operating experience across venture capital, financial services and startup management expertise to each of our investments.
