Innovations For The Future

Jul 20, 2020

Confucius said, “Study the past if you would define the future”.

With the current time threatening the humanity, it got us to think, “What could it hold for the benefit of the humanity!!!”  And to know the probable answers, we dug deeper into the steppingstones of ‘Humanity’ and began the journey on unveiling the evolution of humans.

Being VCs and not historians or biologists, journey began by reading a simple yet powerful book by Yuval Noah Harari - Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind.

The author besides various interesting things highlighted the contribution of early human species in elimination of application of the 2 limbs (hands) in walking and the benefits & sacrifices associated with it, which we still cherish and pay for. 

The simplest way to put the benefits is the ability to multi-task, which lead to efficiency which promoted the strength and the rest is “The Magic of Compounding” over the millions of years.

The seed of thought!!!

The transformation of work culture and foreseeable acceptance to the same, passes a tremendous free bandwidth amongst a substantial population.

This shift in global approach towards mobility for work has blown an all-new headwind to the Immersive Technology Space.

At Auxano!!!

Value creation at Auxano involves thinking out of the box. Awareness today is accessible, but investing is more than just awareness of the present, it involves engaging with products of the future.

Emerging technologies like Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Connected Living, Neurotech hold the key to the next wave of evolution for the humanity when it comes to utilising oneself more efficiently. The real value of technology is derived from the impact created by the final product.

At Auxano, while identifying investable businesses emphasis is laid on the value creation by the innovation in offerings wherein technology is considered an enabler. The products with big technologies but low real impacts are parked at bay.

The vision is to invest in innovative products driven by emerging technologies, delivering value to the humankind.
