“If everything seems under control, you’re just not going fast enough”
– Mario Andretti
Dedication, Sweat and Tears. The life of a champion and the realities of entrepreneurship. Founders face many of the same life changing experiences and emotions as athletes. Much like luge racers, founders moving fast, encounter sudden twists and turns , and have to plan their course while in motion. They have to manage risk, overcome fear and thrive on an insatiable desire to win. They strategize, compete with all their energy and push beyond their limits. At Luge Capital, we seek these rare trailblazers in the financial industry. We help these daring and crazy entrepreneurs build global fintech champions.
We invest in Seed and Series A, when companies are still planning their course. We believe we can help most by getting involved early, when you can’t see the finish line and the odds are not always in your favor. We’re in the trenches with you from the beginning, when you need us, using every tool in our arsenal. When we invest, it’s for the long term. Your success is our success.
Great teams can do great things. We seek passionate teams who are eager to challenge the norms with better ways of delivering financial services, who think big, whose ambition is to solve real problems that affect people globally. We seek out the resilient ones, the agile and the relentlessly optimistic. We search for those who have unique insight about a global market and an unfair advantage.
