This page serves as a ledger of all investments and donations I made (myself, or through a business I own) to a company, organization, project or individual.
Investments in Businesses
I invest in businesses that solve my own problems, or problems I stumbled upon in the past. Though, most of my fund assets are to be allocated on projects that push forward the limits of what is technologically possible in energy, space and robotics, which are the 3 interconnected industries that I focus on.
- 👱♂️ Le Palace Nantes, February 2020, they restored and redesigned a large historic building in the center of Nantes, France, and they now provide startups with private offices and a venue for events, solving an itch we had when we settled Crisp in the city of Nantes;
Donations to Nonprofits
I donate to non-profits with a focus on entities that run a project in open-source software & hardware, or that create technologies to improve human freedom & rights, access to education and knowledge. I am also sensitive to projects that elevate the power of the individual against authoritarian governments, eg. encryption, peer-to-peer messaging protocols, crypto-currencies or any form of decentralized technology, which I think are cornerstones to the proper transition of civilization to the Digital Age, in a Libertarian way.
