We invest in data- driven disruption

Data proliferation and rapid digitalization are redefining the world and creating generational opportunities. We aim to partner with entrepreneurs leveraging this disruption to build the next market leaders within their industries. As the earliest stage investment strategy at Sands Capital, we are long-term partners for growth, who support our portfolio companies through our combination of deep domain expertise and operating experience.

AI / ML will become a critical technology embedded within software, enabling transformative new applications, but also requiring a new suite of developer tools and data infrastructure.

Our online identity defines how we work and access critical applications and services – these online identities must be secured, and their data protected.

Healthcare institutions must adopt new technologies to improve the patient experience, automate manual processes, and enable a higher quality of care.

Consumers are increasingly working, playing, socializing, and transacting online, creating opportunities for businesses to shape these experiences through digital worlds and virtual goods.

Partners for Long-term Growth

Our experienced team is dedicated to cultivating deep, enduring partnerships with entrepreneurs and helping them grow their businesses.
