GreyBird Ventures

is named after the arctic tern, a bird that migrates 71,000 km annually. As they can live for 30 years, this is the lifetime equivalent of three trips to the moon and back. Not bad for a 100 gram bird. We strive to emulate its size to performance ratio as well as its global reach.
