Our History




Manifest

Most VCs focus on finding visionary entrepreneurs trying to solve a big pain in the value chain, in a big market with scalable and profitable business model


We don’t want to change that, however we want to stimulate the best entrepreneurs with innovative and high potential ideas that will transform and push real economy forward, not only the one with a perfect pitch, background or credentials

Help capital flow back to the real economy improving and allowing sustainable growth for the whole society is our purpose
