We are node
We are thrilled to back the new generation of visionaries
As founders and operators, we have raised investment rounds, brought new technologies to market, built world-class IP portfolios, scaled internationally, and IPO:d companies. Experiences that have generated a sturdy foundation of learnings that we are eager to share with the new generation of tech innovators. We’ll help mitigate risks and navigate the bumpy road of building a company.
Together we attain the knowledge needed to see potential and help likely unicorns become windborne.
