Our Founders are THE top talent in their field with a deep desire to build things that create true value into the world. Our Founders come from both entrepreneurial and corporate worlds, but all know that succeeding in entrepreneurship is all about WHO you build with.

The odds are stacked against the everyday venture founder, especially when doing it alone and even more so in emerging markets. Our Founders know that we are stronger (and more likely to succeed) together.
Plus it’s a lot more fun.

All our Founders come with a big risk appetite. Yes, it will be hard. Yes, salaries will not be great.  But the reward is great on many fronts: we combine large equity ownership (which means life-changing financial outcomes) with working with some of the best entrepreneurial talent using world-class startup methodologies.
All this provides an unmatched learning (and life) experience.

Our Founders


Polymath was designed to be the best possible cofounder to the next great entrepreneurial talent (you!). Everything we do aims to drastically de-risk the company (making it more likely to succeed big) and make Founders work more efficient, effective and altogether enjoyable.

Polymath Partners and staff (not to mention other venture Founders) are Founders’ true partners. We are deep professional colleagues with aligned goals, as well as shoulders to cry at times. We are deeply involved in the early stages (1-2 years of the company), providing full teams of Polymath staff to the venture to help find product-market fit and break through big problems.

We are also heavily involved in venture funding. Founders jump into a funded business and can expect deep involvement from Polymath Partners and our investment team on every fundraising round. We have also established a $40M Fund to invest in Series A and B rounds of our ventures, an immensely valuable de-risking mechanism for Polymath companies and Founders.

The Team

RISK VS REWARD (Is all this really worth it?)

We believe that the best way into entrepreneurship is to share the risk…and of course the reward. That is why Founders are given a significant stake in their venture, much more than the industry standard.

In addition, an important part of Founder’s equity package is equity participation in all other ventures of the Polymath group. We do this to help Founders de-risk (we know it’s a big decision to jump in entrepreneurship!). We also do this because we know our Founders add real value to other ventures, which deserves to be rewarded.
