Our Story

Three Friends investing in Cool Startups

HyegiDennis, and Shalen combine our individual startup networks with our expertise in frontier tech to make targeted investments in founders poised to change the world.

Former Harvard classmates, each of us is immersed in diverse aspects of startup investing. Hyegi Chung is a Singapore-based executive at Google and founder of a NASDAQ-listed company (IPO '07), Dennis Porto is a physician and part of the Harvard tech and p2p community, and Shalen De Silva is a former investment banker who studied finance at Cambridge and a founder of a startup out of Techstars and the Harvard iLab.

By virtue of these roles and our global network, we often come across outstanding opportunities that we share with our limited partners.
