Our Thesis

We seek exceptional companies with inspiring people and ideas, who believe in the potential impact of their solutions and are motivated to drive the transformation of traditional industries.

 

In addition to capital, we work closely with our portfolio companies supporting the technological and commercial scale of their solutions, co-developing new applications, and connecting the entrepreneurs to the CSN ecosystem.

 

We look for companies at Seed, Series A and Series B stages that have business models aligned with our verticals of interest.
