We believe technology will bring about an era of global abundance
Each day, new technologies are making our planet more connected, moving us beyond geopolitical borders, challenging traditional models of communication and interaction, which creates a truly global community.
At the center of this movement sits a new breed of entrepreneur whose successes will have an asymmetrical impact on determining how this new connected world operates.
Fuel was created to empower these daring founders in their efforts to take advantage of exponential opportunities and rapidly build companies that have the power to create truly transformative outcomes.
Our global vision towards
We believe the drivers of change that will give rise to global abundance don’t hail from a single zip code, campus, or compound. We think that meaningful, effective investment opportunities will come from across the globe. This is why we have positioned ourself globally, to find and fuel the best ideas.

We’re looking for companies being built on the intersection of exponential technologies
Exponential organizations tend to share these five key external mechanism commonly referred to using the acronym S.C.A.L.E.
Community + Crowd > Most ExOs create and leverage communities to scale. TED uses its community to run TEDx events – over 8,000 have been held in just five years.
Algorithms > As the world turns into data and information, ExOs are leveraging algorithms, including machine learning and deep learning to get new insights about their customers and products.
Leased Assets > Rather than trying to own assets, ExOs access or rent assets to stay nimble. Uber doesn’t own its cars, AirBnB doesn’t own hotel rooms.
Engagement > A critical mechanism to scaling their workforces, gamification and incentive prizes are extensively used by ExOs to achieve scale.
The blockchain ecosystem in many places is already starting to garner strength and has the potential to make a huge impact on African economies and societies.
