ACTIVE INTELLIGENCE

Active is our energy. It shapes everything we do and defines the way we create momentum for ourselves and our portfolio companies. It is how we stay ahead in a fast-moving region and position ourselves to be in the right place and right time when transformative ideas emerge and take hold. As a team of dedicated doers, we focus on the fundamentals and go about our work with the hustle, enthusiasm and curiosity needed to operate and succeed at the sharp edge of cultural trends and technological change.

We take a street-level view, seeking out useful truths about people and the world we live in, before encouraging differing and diverse opinions about what we see and hear as a means of filtering signals from noise.
