As investors, we often talk about ‘knowing it when you see it’. ‘It’ being the x-factor – the difficult-to-explain quantitatively but easy to observe differentiator that sets someone apart from the pack.

The moment we met Stella Han nearly four years ago, we knew she was special. An infectious personality, incredible technical talent, and an entrepreneurial itch made for quite the combo.

So we stayed close through the Fellowship, as we often do, helping where possible and being a trusted community of builders and peers she could rely on.

When we got the call that she was leaving Affirm after nearly three years to start a company – at the intersection of fintech + real estate, two of her personal passions no less – investing was an opportunity that we just couldn’t pass up.

As a result, we’re excited to announce our investment in Fractional, the first social platform for fractional ownership of real estate, alongside our friends at CRV, Unusual, Goodwater, and many others.
