FUND I

2018

We work with teams from anywhere in North America, but – where possible – we leverage our location to create additional value.

Decades of walking some of the more opaque corridors in the country have resulted in unique access and connections, and we bring this network to bear for each of our companies. This ecosystem can be esoteric and nuanced, but with over sixty years of combined experience as operators, entrepreneurs, and investors, it’s safe to say we speak the language.

Fund II

2021

Great leaders are hard to come by. We believe the best ones are military-trained or trial-by-fire entrepreneurs who have the ability to motivate others to action, inspire trust, and plan heuristically. We invest with conviction when those attributes are present. Moonshots Capital, with offices in Los Angeles and Austin, was founded by a team of veterans in 2017. We have collectively founded and operated 14 companies, and have personally invested in over 80 ventures. Beyond capital, we deploy our military and entrepreneurial experience and network to help world-changing companies grow.

Lucata

2015

Today’s computer architectures are basically the same as they were 50 years ago; no one could have predicted then the vast data sets organizations would employ today – it no longer makes sense to move mountains of data in and out of the CPU’s. At Lucata we dared to conceive a computer that addresses this challenge from the ground up.

Conffianz

2015

Most Latinas face a common problem: hyperpigmentation, commonly known as dark spots or manchas. In fact, a recent study revealed that over 80% of Latinas will have dark spots at some point in their life! We started Conffianz because we were frustrated that there were no effective, affordable treatments available to eliminate dark spots. Manchas are one of the most common skin care struggles for Latinas, so we also felt that Latinas were being overlooked by the large skin care companies and we set out to change that. After 10 years of hard work, we are proud to say that we have accomplished our goal, but we are not finished! As the leading Latina focused skincare company, our mission is still to support and empower Latinas to be their very best, inside and out. Our name Conffianz comes from Confianza and Confidente. We understand that every woman is unique and we want you to feel CONFIDENT and LOVED!
