Metcalfe's Law holds that the financial value of a data network is proportional to the square of the number of users connected to the system. We believe that one of the most interesting areas in technology today is data interfaces. We're looking at where enterprises can create business value by merging, sharing, or soliciting data from business partners. 

Moreover, while in the age of purely deterministic computing the ability to build tools that unlock data-network value was limited, things have changed in the age of AI. Companies like Flatfile create data magic: enabling businesses securely to share, exchange, compute upon, and mutually understand large and complex data stores. Likewise Dagster, which enables companies declaratively to define first-class data architectures in code and make them available both inside and outside the company.
