We think about our present actions not only within the context of fund cycles but how they will affect both society and our stakeholders in the long term.
We believe that capitalism should encourage innovations that benefit humanity rather than just innovations that further concentrated wealth generation. Thus, we seek to funnel capital to causes and enterprises that serve society.
To create long-term and shared value for society, our stakeholders and ourselves, we need to build things and not simply extract economic value from those who do. We avoid engaging in rent-seeking and other extractive behaviors.
Purpose-driven passion creates focus, relentless pursuit, and grit. We believe that this allows us to outcompete bad actors over the long term.
We value debate and constantly challenge our ideas, our assumptions, and ourselves to avoid confirmation bias, overly rigid or narrow thinking, and stagnation. We appreciate new perspectives and new ways of looking at a problem.
We believe that experience is to be respected, yet data-driven arguments should hold precedence over age or rank.
We at Epum believe that every present decision directly affects our future and contributes to society's future as a whole. With this framework in mind, all decisions are long-term decisions by default.
