We are 30 years old, on average. We speak more languages than you can count with two hands. Our roots are in three different continents. We have experience in very conventional areas, like building computers from broken ones at the advanced age of seven and investing in stocks at the age of 11 (better late than never), leaving stable and well-paid jobs to join potentially exponential organizations, making a living by playing poker from home in up to 42 simultaneous games, going from being a peaceful Buddhist monk to an entrepreneurial warrior monk, arbitraging geographical price differences in collectible cards, selling shiny objects to princes of the desert, using artificial intelligence to find out that some lawyers are charging more than 24 hours of service a day, or being a kung-fu master that continuously fights with balance sheets.
We are highly made of nerd material. To us, cardboard can be more valuable than gold, and we will challenge you to prove us wrong. Sometimes we get a bit “normal”, but we are fixing that.
We have some principles that we follow religiously, no matter our afterlife beliefs (or lack of them). We are quite obsessed with frugality, this article is written on the skull of one of our competitors, to save paper. I mean, a replica of their skull, made out of palm tree leaves, we find a use for what others would throw away.
We never rest, we train like Super Saiyans in the hyperbolic time chamber, “a day in Alpha Rock feels like a week in the real world”, some true urban legend says. Also, don’t get surprised if you see some of the company’s superhuman Intergalactic Emperors cleaning the floor, we are obsessed with productivity but we don’t hesitate to get our hands dirty every time it’s needed.
We play hard. We don’t hesitate to risk most of our savings when we are sure about something. We expect our efforts to be rewarded with annual returns of over 30% a year, barely more than what traditional investments can offer.
We don’t fool around, we are looking to settle with the right ones and make sure to live a life of stability and joy. That’s why we are allergic to borrowing money, unless all stars are aligned, making the option safe enough. We don’t play Russian Roulette, nor roulettes from other nationalities, we only gamble when the odds are on our side and we can afford to fail.
Also, we are kind of long-term oriented, we want our company to last longer than Kongo Gumi (we had never heard that name before either, but it seems to be the oldest company still operating today, since 578AD) and to grow enough to ring the bell in a stock exchange when we consider the outside world is ready to handle what we can offer them.
We are looking for like-minded partners willing to join this trip and share our victories and drawdowns together. This is not a one-night stand for us, we are in this for a long time. We expect to give you increasing amounts of L.O.V.E. (lasciviously outstanding voluminous earnings).
But beware of what’s coming. After asking a simple question, you had better be prepared to receive a four-page reply on a Sunday. Or to have as many team members as needed in a call with you, no matter how incompatible our time zones look (although our dress code may not be the most conventional, especially in video conferences).
