INVESTING is a form of believing. It’s insight, understanding, experience, and belief that what we do and what we accomplish makes a difference. Investing not just our money, but ourselves as an extension of our value system. We believe in the future, in clean air, and in sustainable forms of energy to power our world, superfoods to make us healthier, and products to extend life and cure disease.

MY NAME IS DAVID NIKZAD. I’m a serial entrepreneur and investor, and I’ve dedicated my career to these ideals. I want to extend this vision globally so that together, we can increase the power of our collective consciousness to drive these beliefs forward. Orthogonal is a group of people committed to investing broadly across a range of companies from inspired start-ups to later-stage, growing firms. Together, we support adveancements in technology, healthcare, longevity, and other universally positive initiatives.

THE STRATEGY IS SIMPLE. We are a global accelerator and platform, powering investment in technology, wellness, healthcare, AI, digital ownership, deep tech and fintech for a new utopian asset class. We intend to change the world for the healthier, accelerate disruption where it is needed, and seek equitable returns on the journey.

Orthogonal is the scientific principle of right angles. For us, it embodies the idea of progression via new and unexpected means. What begins here, naturally connects there. Based on the universal and exponential power of tangential energy, Orthogonal is an investment strategy which achieves success by riding tangents of possibility through an environment of diverse, seasoned, and unique individuals.

We employ an entirely new paradigm in opportunity assessment apart from the traditional investment company. Each of our investments is carefully assessed not only for its potential financial return but also for the positive impact it can create for both people and the planet. Whether leveraging next-generation technologies or ancient practices reimagined for current-day applications, every investment must measure up. Way up.

A Utopian Asset Class

Orthogonal Global Group seeks to further a Utopian Asset Class, or “UAC”, which aims to encompass an idealized form of investment vehicle. A UAC will extend beyond traditional financial classifications, solidifying Orthogonal Global Group as a disrupter amongst its peers.

The tokenization of RWAs and industries is bending the arc of humanity towards a utopian society. Therefore, we intend to invest in products, solutions, and services that make the world a better place/bring the world closer to being a utopia.

Our mission is to counter this trend by promoting a deeper understanding and application of these fields, potentially leading to transformative changes in how we perceive and interact with the world.

It's a concept that blends the mystical with the scientific, suggesting ​ a future where our understanding of the universe and our place in it is profoundly deepened through a synergy of advanced scientific​ knowledge and a more expansive, enlightened state of consciousness.​

David Nikzad, CEO & Co-Founder of Orthogonal Global Group

"Throughout the centuries there were men who took first steps down new roads armed with nothing but their own vision. Their goals differed, but they all had this in common: that the step was first, the road new, the vision unborrowed, and the response they received--hatred. The great creators--the thinkers, the artists, the scientists, the inventors--stood alone against the men of their time. Every great new thought was opposed. Every great new invention was denounced. The first motor was considered foolish. The first airplane was considered impossible. The power loom was considered vicious. Anesthesia was considered sinful. But the men of unborrowed vision went ahead. They fought, they suffered and they paid. But they won."

Howard Roark, The Fountainhead
