Item of Christian’s private collection of historic artefacts centering around the ritualistic use of psychedelics:
Osiris was the (benign) god of the afterlife, the underworld and rebirth in ancient Egyptian religion.
Mythology connects him with the plant Acacia Nilotica, which contains Dimethyltryptamine, or DMT. This is the same compound that is used in shamanic rituals in the Amazon with the drink Ayahuasca.
We aspire to be thought leaders in
frontier technology. With our investments, we strive to create the world we want to live in.
Christian’s first successful investment/foundation, at the age of 20, was Ribopharma; which later merged with a US company and today is stock-market-listed Alnylam Pharmaceuticals (ticker symbol ALNY, US$ 23bn market cap). Hence, we have a special interest in and passion for biotech.
Many of today’s global mega-trends, such as our aging population, create a continuously rising demand for new and innovative medical devices and drugs.
Our main focus is on longevity & mental wellbeing. We want to enable people to live longer, healthier and happier lives.

Life has never been more exciting. Over the next 20 years, we as the human race will not just completely redesign the world around us – from synthetic biology to self-driving cars to space travel, to just name a few examples – but also re-design and re-define what it means to be human itself.
We will slow down and one day even reverse aging and extend healthy human life span way beyond 100 years. But is a finite life experience part of what makes us human?
We will have therapeutics not just preventing Alzheimer’s and Dementia, but also increasing the intellectual capacity in young people. How will upgraded human intellects view themselves?
Advances in AI, Quantum Computing and synthetic biology will create leapfrogs throughout any sector. But how will a sentient AI define its own existence versus the human race?
And these are just a few examples. Every single aspect of our life will be fundamentally touched and transformed by technology over the next 20 years. And we want to be the driving force of this exciting time and help create the world we want to live in and help design the next human agenda.
