INVESTMENT PROFILE

Execution Oriented Founders with a Remarkable Vision

We back exceptional founders with a strong product oriented mindset who are looking to build a large, sustainable enterprise. We require a technical co-founder to ensure the company’s ability to rapidly iterate on its quest for product market fit. We have to be convinced that the founders are in the business for the enduring process it takes to go from a startup to a hyper growth, world-changing enterprise. The key characteristic we look for is grit – the ability to forge through the inevitable painful cycles to becoming a dominant market player.

Seed stage means a product has been built

We invest up to $1M at the seed stage and reserve significant capital for follow on investments. We will invest pre-launch, but rarely do we invest before something is built. We work tirelessly to get our companies to the next major milestone and we want to ensure that the team can execute on building the core team and product.
