Accelerating the success of visionary founders and investors
Welcome to our thriving community. We ignite the landscape by forging valuable connections and creating a dynamic ecosystem where founders, entrepreneurs, investors, and leaders can exchange experiences, knowledge, and inspiration.
Our mission is to empower the disruptors, fuelling their growth and success through community, collaborative learning, and unrivalled access to investment and deal flow. We understand the challenges of building successful companies and smart investment portfolios. This community offers the opportunity to never walk that path alone.
Our vibrant community comprises two carefully curated and distinct ecosystems. Two for founders – seed stage founders (Canopy), Series A+ founders and CEOs (Summit) – and two for investors – angel investors (Horizon), and VCs (Aurora). Each community propels our members to new heights, fuelling growth, and driving success through shared experiences, peer-to-peer learning, and strategic collaborations.
