Locations

As a global venture builder focused on transformative ideas and with teams located on both coasts, we take the best of both worlds by combining the drive of New York with the innovation of Silicon Valley.

Our headquarters are located in Dakar, Senegal and in the heart of Silicon Valley at 1250 Oakmead Parkway, Sunnyvale, CA (Suite 210).  Our ventures operate in Manhattan (can’t knock the hustle), Las Vegas (hello Zappos), Miami Beach (sun, sand and sweat), Washington D.C. (where we tackle global problems) and off the beautiful tropical coast of Dakar, Senegal (the world’s best kept secret).  We might even get on Blueseed, who knows?
