Our portfolio companies span a range of verticals, but they have one thing in common: they strive to eliminate waste. They create significant value out of under-utilized assets. They use precious resources efficiently, reduce overhead, empower individuals, put people to work and help communities grow. They enable more timely and relevant products and experiences, remove friction, and shorten the distance between supply and demand. They invent new business models that change the economics of an industry.
