Community, Funding & Sport inspired Toolbox for People First startups
We support entrepreneurs who chose to build game changing companies, whilst playing by the rules and values of Sportsmanship
We're looking for the best "people first" Team builders in Tech.
Toxicity in tech is real
Over the last decade, we have seen a significant increase in toxic practices that put people last and lead to mental health issues or worse. This is not a path to building great companies.
We want to change the rules
A new backing model inspired by the values of sport.
Building a new investment model: Sustainable, Ambitious, and Fair
We want to be a safe place for people first founders to build their companies and invest money in a way that it incentivizes them to grow long-term success.
Empowering start-ups with sport culture and values
We want to bring best practices from Sport to Tech.
Dominant sport teams (see : 15 principles of the All Blacks) have developed methods for years, but they haven’t yet been used effectively by startups and VCs.
There are very few connections between the tech ecosystem and the world of sports.
Yet, these two worlds have so much to offer one another.
However, being People First drives performance
"The score takes care of itself". If you are here for your people, success will come naturally.
