Mr. FoW | Our Thesis

We need movement makers. We need ecosystem builders. We need diverse innovators who come from all walks of life.  We need people who love to build and lead, not for the recognition, not for the reward, but for the fulfillment of shattering stereotypes, breaking new ground, and helping people achieve their ultimate potential.

For the fulfillment of transforming the world and inspiring a more abundant future.

We need people who are RUTHLESS about building a better tomorrow. I believe these people exist and I believe in elevating them with my platform and ecosystem.

Personally, we only invest in and advise Enterprise B2B Software as a Service (SaaS) / Platform as a Service (PaaS) Future of Work start-ups focused on GLOBAL markets, not only local, in particular, we are keenly interested in start-ups that blur the lines between work AND life AND are MERGING 2 or more EMERGENT technologies (e.g., AI, Robotics, machine vision/intelligence, Blockchain, RPA, IoT, or Augmented/Mixed Reality/VR, etc;).

More importantly, we love investing in diverse (not fully physically-able, women, neurally-diverse (e.g., dyslexia, ADHD, OCD, etc;), LGBTQIA, black, international/immigrants, and non-traditional) underrepresented founders who have ruthless discipline and are building truly inclusive orgs.

We invest in founders who OBSESS over the problem, not the solution.

You will see it in their eyes and the way they lead. They’ll show it to you that they are obsessed, not tell you. They operate on a different scale and wavelength. They have compassionate resolve and practice ruthless discipline. They are unbothered by volatility. They are unbothered by change. They can adapt. They have thick skin and a bigger heart. They are ruthless, yet compassionate. They show zen.

You will receive bonus points if you're a trained experience designer and architect or are a creative.
