Investing in people building new normals.
We execute a concentrated all-cap US equity long/short strategy, the investment objective of which is to maximize absolute returns. We do not diversify, do not hedge, and do not use leverage to achieve our investment objective. A proprietary volatility-adjusted risk management algorithm serves as the ballast of our strategy. Our performance is generated through a combination of concentration, catalysts and optionality.
“‘You tried to buy it with eighty-four days at sea. They nearly sold it to you too.'”
– The Old Man and the Sea

Braave is a BreastTech company. Braave produces on-demand, made-to-measure bras using a patented modular bra design and proprietary 3D scanning and printing technologies with far reaching consumer and medical applications. Braave’s technology will drive a new normal in the bra industry by eliminating rigid, standardized sizing and embracing humanity, body positivity, inclusion, individuality, and sustainability. The company’s intellectual property enables the on-demand ordering and production of 3D printed breast supports customized to the individual cup from the comfort of home. Exact measurements are taken with in-app measurement technology, which captures a customer’s body scan, or BreastPrint, via Braave’s encrypted BreastID app that is available in the Apple App Store. Using the BreastPrint and proprietary algorithms, Braave 3D prints custom breast supports that fit a client’s exact specifications, which are then inserted into the modular bra design. The modular bra has been developed for comfort with a front-fastening design, ultra-soft fabric and flexible underfits designed specifically for each customer. Bra production is eco-friendly with the material consisting of 75% recycled plastic and the made-to-order manufacturing process minimizes waste.
