Shadow Foundry innovates and invests in revolutionary technologies.
APPROACH & PHILOSOPHY
Shadow Foundry provides full stack technical expertise to individuals and organizations. We specialize in high-risk, high-impact projects based in the United States or Burma. For non-profit and humanitarian organizations, we help you design, build, and deploy transformative limited-use technologies.
We are an activist firm and prefer to work intensively with every team in our portfolio. As such, we currently choose to limit our focus to just a handful of core projects each year. We believe the most promising ventures are substantially improved with our quality time and attention, and so we do not entertain ideas that are not fundamentally disruptive.
Our mission is to change the world by de-risking strategic innovation. As part of that commitment, Shadow Foundry allocates a substantial portion of its portfolio towards capturing supererogatory asymmetry, a special situation where reward/risk approaches infinity. As a result, our portfolio may reflect an asset diversity uncorrelated with any other venture, technology, or investment firm.
Shadow Foundry is technology-agnostic. From blockchains to C# to Python to Wasm, if the solution is absolutely the right fit, we'll use it.
