OUR VISION: TO BUILD A VIVID ECOSYSTEM THAT INCITES COLLABORATION FOR ACHIEVING MAXIMUM MUTUAL VALUE

JKR is not a typical rigid capital investor. We orchestrate our ecosystem and induce the investee companies to extend the influence.

We strive to be a long-term investor, unlike VCs that invest for 3 to 5 years. We understand that it takes time for our investees to root and start bearing fruit within the ecosystem, creating the ripple effect.

The ecosystem itself is an excellent indicator of whether a company we choose to invest in is a good asset. Partnering with other companies, the positive network effect of the ecosystem kicks in, enabling each party to benefit from the partnership.

AS FOR OUR NAME, JKR STANDS FOR JOKER. A CARD THAT CAN COMPLETELY CHANGE THE COURSE OF THE GAME

PHILOSOPHY

We always wanted JKR to be a place where businesses come for guidance other than funding to take them to the next level

WE BELIEVE IN A SIMPLE IDEA

Perseverance in nailing one simple idea after another and the right ecosystem is to bear outstanding results.

WE ARE THE TURBINE

We don’t reinvent the wheel. We become a mighty turbine that fuels a simple idea making it the fastest and most powerful one in the market, leaving the competition in the dust.

WE ARE FULLY ENGAGED

If what you invest in leaves you warm or cold - let it go. We engage with the companies that set our hearts on fire. There is hot and cold, no in-betweens.

WE BET ON A TALENT

A great idea without the right leadership is a liability. When an idea fails, a strategy is off, a product is wrong, the team is who rights the ship.

WE TRUST OUR GUT

Sometimes we just know. We may get flattened by a company, an idea, or a talent. But if deep inside, something seems not right, we always listen to our gut feeling. Out of experience, we don’t talk ourselves into the deal.

WE CHOOSE SOUL PARTNERS

One can bode us the almighty dollar, but if we don’t match on a personal level, we’ll take a pass on a partnership.

OUR VALUES

OUR VALUES

We believe that values are the core of a successful business. Here is how we treat our partners and how we expect to be treated ourselves:

1
BE DECENT.
There is no need to explain what it means to be a decent person, is there?

2
BE PASSIONATE.
We believe that passion is fundamental, not acquired. Therefore, we invest in businesses we are personally passionate about. We also expect the top management to be passionate about the vision and future of their companies from day one.

3
BE OPEN.
Your opinion will not always coincide with the opinion of others. But we choose to listen and hear each other, because the more points of view, the better the solution.

4
TAKE OWNERSHIP.
We believe that immersive leaders bring more results than assigned managers. This is why we encourage our investees to make their own decisions and take the responsibility that comes with them.

5
LEAD BY EXAMPLE.
You may force your team to obey, but you cannot force it to follow you. Inspire, not command.
