Mission

To relentlessly seek out opportunities to create value for our clients through detailed, proprietary analysis, and to assemble an investment portfolio with a superior risk-return profile. To treat investors' capital as our own.

Why "Handmade"

Handmade represents the highest level of craftmanship: attention to detail is the life of the work. Time is taken, care is paid, and our enduring expectation is that precise work will bear fruit.

Strategy

Concentrated equity long/short absolute return strategy targeting double-digit returns, focused primarily on media and technology. We add opportunistic positions outside of our core industries as they arise.

Edge

Our investors and our board primarily include highly accomplished tech entrepreneurs whose expertise and networks give us a definitive advantage when evaluating investments. Technological innovation is the most significant driver of value appreciation in our economy, and correctly distinguishing between winners and losers in this space will generate future returns in excess of the broader market.
