Fast and Early
We focus exclusively on very early investments in pre-seed companies where risk-adjusted returns are greatest. We act fast and follow a no-nonsense approach to investing from initial contact to wiring funds.
We implement a data-driven approach to potfolio building and rely heavily on both proprietary and third-party AI to spot trends, identify market gaps, build competitive landscapes, and improving collaboration.
With over 30-years of combined entrepreneurial experience, we are uniquely positioned to not only identify potential outliers but to empathize with founders as they embark on entrepreneurial journeys of their own.
