We’ve been contrarian from the start. Our firm was born in Geneva in 1996, and we quickly expanded to London with the goal of bringing Silicon Valley-style investment to Europe. We spent our first decade shaping the European tech ecosystem, and that momentum propelled us to our second headquarters in San Francisco. Our reach continues to expand, and the same global, contrarian perspective we began with continues to shape our investing philosophy.
We’re immeasurably passionate about the companies we help transform and the entrepreneurs behind them. We’re a close-knit, collaborative group — not just with each other, but with all the founders we’ve championed.
