Our founder's smart-glasses startup, of which he was Founder, CEO and it's biggest investor, becomes Snapchat's earliest aquisition, affording him a major exit, as well as some immediate liquidity. He decides to begin investing in new startups that seem just as audacious as his was when he was getting started.
The very first investment made by our founder on behalf of Hyperspeed, was in Rigetti Quantum Computing's seed round to support thier mission building the world's most powerful computer. Since then, Rigetti's world-class team has raised over $64 Million USD in follow-on financing and are well on thier way to accomplishing this groundbreaking goal.
The next series of investments focused on biotechnology, specifically regenerative bioengineering (EpiBone) and genetic engineering (Caribou). Caribou Biosciences' founder discovered the revolutionary CRISPR/CAS9 mechanism allowing the engineering of any genome in any way. The profound implications of this technology was so massive we simply had to invest.
We're now better capitalized than ever, and have since made many more investments in the on-demand economy, in big-data intelligence, in robotics and eSports to name a few. We are continuously looking for great companies that defy convention, making the impossible become possible.
