“The best organizations of the future will empower the most talented people with the most powerful technologies.”
Steven A. Cohen
We invest in companies that are transforming the global financial services industry.
We invest in AI, machine learning, and data – the change agent for all industries.
We invest in entrepreneurs building enterprise infrastructure, applications, and cybersecurity technologies that shape, power, and protect the global economy.
We know how the financial services market works: the complexity of the ecosystem, the agendas and motivations of established players, and what it takes for a new entrant to be successful. We know that fintech isn’t just something in the app store – and we aim to be the most knowledgeable venture investor for entrepreneurs in the industry. Financial Technology | Financial Services | Enterprise Software where FinServ is high value / early adopter
We have personal relationships with the most relevant thinkers and decision makers across the world’s leading investment banks, asset managers, hedge funds, consumer banks, lenders, exchanges, payment networks, insurers, and trading desks. We focus as much on understanding their businesses and strategic direction as we do meeting startups.
We know this industry from bare metal to application layer, retail and institutional, across all product categories, in every market across the globe – and we see the next wave of innovation starting at the infrastructure level. We work for one of the most innovative and connected financial firms in the world, and combined with our breadth and depth of experience at VC funds and bulge bracket strategic investment groups, we’re uniquely positioned to understand your business.
We partner with our companies to get their products right, and use our vast resources to find the right strategic partners, early adopters, enterprise customers, and champions from across the industry – the true keys to success. We are laser-focused on driving value once we make an investment.
At Point72, we are practitioners first. We use AI, ML and data-driven strategies in every area of our business. We invest in entrepreneurs who are partners in the journey of tackling hard data problems. Applied AI | Core ML | Hard Tech
AI + ML are all we do. We can value what you’ve built on its technical merits. AI investing is a new asset class, and we don’t overfit to rigid priors like traditional revenue metrics.
We’ve spent years working on these problems and speak to hundreds of companies. This gets us to conviction quickly, and we match our conviction with an ability to price and lead early stage rounds of all sizes.
Leverage the advice and relationships only a world-class financial institution and fellow practitioners of AI can provide.
We know enterprise tech because it’s all we do. Our extensive research, significant time with entrepreneurs, and engagement with a vast network of enterprise IT buyers ensures we’re additive from the first meeting. After we invest, we’ll work just as hard as you to build a world-changing company together. Enterprise Infrastructure | Cybersecurity | Enterprise Applications | Infrastructure for the Future
We're technical enterprise specialists who focus on helping world-class entrepreneurs solve big problems. We'll roll up our sleeves and help you build a category-defining company, providing market expertise and access to our specialized customer and advisor network.
We've spent years growing enterprise businesses as operators and investors. We’ve seen what it takes to build a great company and are conscious of how important it is for you to stay focused to succeed. We know what we're looking for and move with speed and conviction when we see it.
When we invest, we commit to building a company together through thick and thin. We’ll leverage our relationships with enterprise IT buyers, including Point72, one of the most innovative firms in finance. Our goal is for founders to look back and say that we were the most helpful partner they've ever worked with.
