meet the team

Who are we & what do we stand for?

We are a strong, global team of entrepreneurs, investors, designers and that joins together to form one epic innovation ecosystem. To enable us to all continuously grow, learn and thrive in our jobs we developed & defined 4 core values.



It’s what gets us out of bed in the morning. We take innovative risks with a 'Just Do It' mentality.


We're hungry, we're passionate, and we thrive off new problems & challenges.

Learning desire

We always look to challenge ourselves to know more, to learn more & be the best at what we do. We learn from each other, through leaders, our startups, scaleups & corporate partners.

Embrace change

We embrace, and get (un)comfortable in knowing that if we’re not adapting, evolving, or improving - we’re falling short.

Meet the team making it all happen.
