Our Story

Three Friends with a Shared Vision

Former Harvard classmates, HyegiDennis, and Shalen combine years of experience in startup investing with deep expertise in emerging tech like AI/ML, biotech, and distributed systems.

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.
