While our team has a history of investing in software, hardware, media, and more, we’ve become increasingly interested in consumer companies that have merged several of those categories to create ubiquitous brands that are now mainstays in homes and hearts.  

Here, we’ve gathered some of our favorite products from the True portfolio to make gift-giving this holiday easier than everything else in 2020. There’s something for everyone — the wearable tech enthusiast, the beauty buff on the hunt for eco-friendly alternatives, and anyone looking to de-stress and get a better night’s sleep. 

Zero-Waste Style 

London-based Wires Glasses launched a line of futuristic masks in addition to its zero-waste eyewear. All Wires eyewear are made of bio-plastics, bio-lenses, and a single wire for maximum comfort and the least amount of waste.
