WE INVEST IN
PROGRESS

We connect corporations and emerging companies.
We don't stand still. We create momentum. 
 
At the heart of everything we do is our drive to improve:
the system, the status quo, and people's lives

WE FOCUS ON THREE OF THE WORLD'S MOST CRUCIAL INDUSTRIES:

FOOD & AGRICULTURE

We invest in emerging food & agriculture technologies that help increase production, reduce inputs and improve sustainability.

HEALTHCARE

We connect startups with BlueCross BlueShield entities to create efficiencies, reduce costs and improve delivery in the changing healthcare marketplace. 

INSURANCE

We bring (re)insurance companies together to invest in strategically-relevant startups that address unmet customer needs and fill gaps across the industry.
