The Kairos Modern society is not just hoping to convey the upcoming generation of business people with each other — it is investing in their companies, way too.
The organization right now announced a seed fund named Kairos Modern society Ventures, and the portfolio previously includes Abaris (which offers a private-sector option to social protection), Brazilian education startup Me Salva, Colombian transporation startup Mi Águila, and Radish, which provides serialized fiction in cellular apps.
The Kairos Modern society is not disclosing the dimensions of the fund, but founder Ankur Jain reported it is in the 8 figures. (The organization had elevated $7.four million as of November, in accordance to a regulatory filing.)
The fund will be managed by Jain (who grew to become vice president of products at Tinder just after the dating app acquired his startup Humin), Alex Fiance and Ryan Bloomner. Kairos claims it will be investing in “moonshot ventures coming out of the prolonged Kairos Modern society local community.”
This is on top of the fellowship application that Kairos previously operates, which it claims spans far more than fifty countries and one hundred universities. And the company will be performing with the Rockefeller family to maintain a 3-working day summit in New York City, starting on April 20.
