About Us

After years of investing in over 20+ startups with multiple successful exits, we've decided to focus this fund on the phenomenally underpenetrated (yet, exciting!) startup ecosystem of Pakistan

We're looking to invest in ambitious founders with disruptive ideas, that are trying to solve local and global problems.

We help you build the right foundation to turn the product itself into the primary driver of customer acquisition, and expansion.

Product at the core

Much more than capital

We believe early-stage investments should go far beyond just a cheque, so we open up our ecosystem to you, both locally and globally.

We like to move fast 

We make decisions relatively quickly and you'll be involved in each stage. Unlike most funds, we don't need 3-6 months for our diligence.

Consider us family (or friends)

We like to come in as early as the family and friends round and are not afraid to be the first cheque in (actually prefer it at times!).
