👋 Hello! We’re Augend Ventures.
We’ve built this to help you understand our people, work and motivations.
If you’re a founder, we hope that this will also help you to assess whether we might be good investors in your startup amongst the options that you have.
We are bullish on human potential.
We believe that there is still vast human potential to be unlocked - through transformed workplaces, powerful community networks and a revolution in learning.
That’s why we invest in the future of work, community and learning.
Why ‘Augend’? In arithmetic, an augend is the very first part of an addition. For example, in 3 + 8 = 11, the augend is 3. We’re early-stage, value-add investors - we’re augends.
We are mission and impact motivated.
We believe in the power of startups to drive innovation and positive social change.
Whilst we have focus areas, we’re also open to founders and startups with the potential to deliver enormous social impact, regardless of sector.
Augend Ventures have been exceptional advisors to me. Their guidance, willingness to share network, resources, own experiences and wisdom while listening closely, are all qualities that I’ve learned from. Beyond that, as advisors they have always tried to help me become a better founder. Their constant support has been invaluable. - Ike, founder of eWorker
Augend Ventures have been an incredible sounding board for us throughout. They are unflappable, insightful, consistent, and creative. Their input is always thought provoking and considered but always inspired us towards our own solutions rather than trying to push a point of view. They are wonderful advisors but, more importantly, wonderful humans to have on this journey with you. - Adrienne, founder of Rize
