COSIMO Connection

COSIMO Ventures have been instrumental in providing support to Nova Leah. As a small-team start up, COSIMO shared their experiences and knowledge that proved as an invaluable extension to our own team throughout our early phases. Being an “all entrepreneur” investor team, they provide very practical advice on every aspect of sales, operations, business and strategy development. They have an extensive “rockstar” network who immediately became available to us as extension of their team. They’re flexible in their approach in that, they understand when you need to get on with running the company, but they’re always available to take an unplanned call. They are highly energetic, focused and engaging investor team.

Building a New Monetary System

Chris Quirk

CEO of Oneiro

Chris Quirk

“I imagine a world with an improved currency, less fraud, less crime and less corruption. The kind of world we want for our children. Let’s start with that.”

Philosophy

The world’s most powerful principle is evolution. The great thing about humans is we don’t have to wait generations for improvements to take hold. We can learn as fast as our iteration loops. That’s why agile development is so powerful. When software development moved from waterfall to agile, development cycles went from 18 months to 2-4 weeks. That enabled products and applications to improve almost at the speed of thought.

The only way to improve is to learn. You learn from trying and failing and then applying those lessons learned.

Corporate Vision

We are building a legendary company by imagining the world with an improved currency. Imagine a world with less fraud, less crime, less corruption; the kind of world we want for our children. We start with that.

COSIMO Connection

COSIMO is not like any other VC firm I’ve worked with. They are hands-on and provide valuable advice. They have experience being operators themselves, so they know what it’s like to be an entrepreneur and the day-to-day challenges we face. They are hands-on but not heavy-handed. Their advice is from years of wisdom, but it’s still that: advice. They let me run the company and I feel supported. They also understand the importance of having enough operating capital to make mistakes. I don’t feel like we have to be perfect. We can make mistakes and still have enough operating cash to recover.
