Empowering the pioneers of today to solve the hard problems of tomorrow_

Why do hard problems matter the most?

{Solving problems that matter the most} Hard problems matter the most because they push the boundaries of human knowledge and capability, driving innovation and progress. It’s exactly when we collectively solve these challenges that we can build a better version of the future in which we live and work. This is why we invest into core infrastructure for biotech, robotics, enterprise infrastructure, AI & data, and cybersecurity.
