Our venture founders
At the heart of all of our businesses are specially selected founding member teams. When the Seed phase concludes with an exciting business concept, we rigorously recruit the best senior talent in the region to form the executive leadership that will take the concept into launch and operations. Founders own significant equity stake in the venture, and are committed to the success of the business – we work alongside them every step of the way.

What we provide Founders
As an entrepreneur, building alone is extremely difficult (especially in emerging markets). At Polymath, we put all necessary ingredients together to drastically increase the likelihood of success. Here’s what founders who join us can expect:
Talented teamCore to Polymath’s success is building an incredibly strong founding team. It’s not about finding the right one person. You will join other hand-selected founders, who, together, cover all necessary bases of the company. Polymath Partners and staff will also join the venture full-time, building alongside the venture in the first year.
Tested conceptsIt isn’t difficult to come up with a good idea. Great ideas, on the other hand – that solve real problems and have potential to truly scale – are less common. Through our Seed process, we create innovative concepts backed by strong business models that entrepreneurs can choose from to build powerful companies with less risk.
Proven methodologyWe supply the toolbox for entrepreneurial success at each venture stage. From establishing working modes and culture of methodical experimentation and learning, to building lean operations and focusing on the proper metrics of success, Polymath has developed and road-tested startup “technologies” for founders to incorporate and deploy.
Operating capitalStarting a business is difficult without the funds to allow an entrepreneur to really focus on bringing a business to life. We provide the crucial startup money to get the venture staffed, launched and operating, and work with founders to continuously raise capital for growth.
Ready to found a game-changing company?
We are looking for the next great leaders for our ventures. Our founders exhibit incredible analytical horsepower, a strong bias towards action, big risk appetite (willingness to take less salary in place of substantial equity ownership) and great leadership ability. So if you think you could be the next CEO or COO of one of our companies, reach out!
