FOUNDER


We are a collective partnership.

 

Our mission is to become the trusted counsel to Founders and to pursue their bold ideas with them.

We’ve purposefully built a smaller fund. This allows for conscious engagement at a company’s most nascent stage.

We invest in people not themes. Founders see the future before investors. We are devoted to "purpose built" Founders – those with bold ideas and singular focus.

We commit to Founders early. We will invest despite the absence of data or social proof. True seed stage investors demonstrate leadership with funding commitments and we are proudly the first institutional investor behind the majority of Founders we've backed.
