A trusted partner to help you grow.

Our firm was founded by two industry veterans in 2014 who left large, highly respected firms to create their own startup: a smaller, nimble firm focused on collaborating with the world’s greatest entrepreneurs and venture investors. As early stage investors, we focus on the Series A and selectively participate in Seed financings.

We back exceptional entrepreneurs through every stage of their journey.

Our team members have funded over 100 companies, participated in over 350 follow in financings, and advised dozens of startups on M&A transactions, IPOs, and strategic partnerships.  As focused early stage investors, we partner with our management teams for the long term.  We know how demanding it is to build a business and we stand by our teams through every phase of growth.  We know that life is rarely linear.

How are we to work with? Just ask our CEOs: over a third of our portfolio companies are comprised of repeat founders for our team.

We believe in collaboration.

We believe in surrounding an entrepreneurial team with more than one set of insights, experiences, perspectives, and networks to maximize founder success.  We are not limited by a particular check size or ownership percentage when we invest in a company.  We are focused on getting the right team around the table for our entrepreneurs at every step of their company’s growth – from seed to maturity.

This isn't our first rodeo.

Our team has invested throughout several market cycles, affording us a sage perspective that comes from working alongside our entrepreneurs across multiple cycles. We’ve backed founders who have created enduring companies and generated billions of dollars of returns.
