HUMANS ARE WIZARDS 🧙. BUT IN THE NEXT 50 YEARS WE WILL BECOME 💪 SUPERHEROES.

Homo-sapiens can communicate globally, but we still can’t communicate with animals. Humans can travel at 300mph in a tin can, but we still can’t stop bullets in mid-flight using our minds. We can build incredible structures, but have yet to create a civilization on the ocean.

Humans have limits, and it’s time for technology to unlock humanity’s limitless potential.

Humans are going up against hard problems in the next 100 years. Feeding 9 Billion people, not destroying the planet, effects of longer lives, diversifying to space, and the power struggle between government and the individual… and millions more. It is necessary to equip ourselves with super abilities to grant us better odds in the future. To not only survive, but to thrive.

Enabling Super-humans.

I was raised on superheroes/Sci-Fi, not only my parents, but also by comic books. I lived in the worlds of Marvel and DC for most of my childhood, who knew it might pay off in my career, when every super power would be possible to build.

Whether it’s Red Rising, Spider-Man, Invincible, or Ready Player One… Superpowers are inevitable. Let’s make ourselves smarter, faster, stronger and telekinetic.

I believe human augmentation is one of the most important sectors to focus on in this decade and using some of the latest technology can solve some of our largest issues as a species and planet.

What Are We Looking For:

  • Exoskeletons: 🏃‍♀️We made an investment into ROAM robotics Where the founding team re-imagined the exoskeleton to make it affordable and accessible! We are looking for more founders re-imagining external enhancers for humanity, these could include brain chips, software to enable human robotics, or casual clothing that withstands extreme heat and cold.
  • At Home Robotics: 🤖 Have the best doctors perform surgery on you from the other side of the world, or better yet, have a robot do it. The Roomba is the best consumer robot on the planet… we can do better. What needs automation around the house or your health. Let’s build robots for good.
  • Biohackers: 🏠 The next societal scientific breakthroughs won’t come out of a university lab, it’s going to come out of the garage of some teenager. The cost of starting a bio company is dropping drastically with new infrastructure. There is a new breed of bio founder that we want to discover. Let’s reprogram cells, and give dinosaurs life.

We are searching for the best entrepreneurs using the latest technologies to solve the hardest problems of today. Or as we like to say, making SciFi a Reality. If you are working on Human Augmentation come talk to us!
