Who Should Be Interested:
Are you interested in investing….but also interested in making a difference and helping the world? If that sounds like you, then Orthogonal could be the investment you’ve been waiting for. They’re a holding company with the mission of changing the world, one incubator and startup at a time.

The Company:
As founder David Nikzad puts it, “Orthogonal is a holding company and ecosystem that unites the desire to make money with doing good for the planet and society.” Orthogonal controls equity stake in companies that have the goal of serving the greater good and truly helping the world we live in. Then, in return, Orthogonal gets operational resources, a management ecosystem, and mentorship. They help catapult companies to success by “providing them with a monetization strategy, operational support, compliance / regulatory guidance and connect them with our investor network.” They were one of the first pre-institutional investors in Betterment in 2009, which is now valued at $800M and manages over $13B in assets, and they are currently incubating seven seed-stage companies. They’ve also signed a term sheet for a Pharma ICO and are launching their own ICO in the spring of 2018 to provide blockchain solutions to benefit all of their holdings.

The Bottom Line:
Orthogonal wants to make a difference. They’re engaging investors and incubating startups who see the benefit of doing good, and helping them succeed. Orthogonal is living up to its name...by providing the right angles needed to the holding and investment world.
