Our difference

  • [01]


    Started in 1999 by investor Philippe Laffont, we know a founder’s journey first-hand. Conviction and agility fuel our constant evolution — and we look for the same never-settle ethos in our partners.

  • [02]


    Our singular obsession with technology drives how we work as a firm. As investors, we seek out the greatest innovators with the biggest ideas. Our team also includes technologists and engineers who inform our discerning pursuit of the most disruptive trends.

    Data science and insights

    Data science gives us the conviction to invest in big ideas — as well as the data that we put to work for our portfolio companies. Our in-house team of data scientists and engineers built a proprietary platform with over 200 unique datasets from thousands of companies to provide customized insights on GTM strategies, industry benchmarking, fundraising, hiring, and more.
