Our philosophy

We believe straightforward honesty is the best support a VC can bring. To better react, to execute faster. To keep going in the face of adversity while avoiding the pitfalls. To build to last, in an often cyclical ecosystem.

We partner with the heart-led, away from the ephemeral glory of an entrepreneurship star system: those who crave to leave a legacy and define the markets they shape.

« Pouvoir tout se dire, pour de super bonnes nouvelles ou pour des moments de doute - cette constance et cette confiance sont extrêmement importantes »
