Intonation Ventures

- Investing in products that bring joy to the world -

Our Philosophy

We see the steady decline in happiness as one of human's biggest challenges.
"According to the latest World Happiness Report, the overall life satisfaction fell by 6% in the US between 2007 and 2018, and the happiness level among adults falls consistently below the higher levels of the 1990s."

Phenomenal products can change that.

We invest in the people, products, and missions that bring fun and power.
We invest at the intersection of physical and digital world.
We cannot wait to venture into the future, together.
