SURFnCODE is a builder of
products and companies
We believe the venture investment model can do more to help founders find success faster, and at lower risk.

This is why we created SURFnCODE, a product studio that backs great founders to jointly build products that impact the future.

About Us

We are a team of product, technology and investment professionals who have been building products at Skype, Apple, Microsoft and Amazon.

We partner with hand-picked founders of early-stage companies whose missions we believe in to create valuable products and scale teams into standalone businesses. We are hands-on co-founders that care about the details.

Our goal is to build great long-lasting businesses that improve lives and make life richer and more enjoyable. Our values create a culture of shared success across our companies, driving learning and collaboration.
