We value agility.
Prediction is very difficult, especially
about the future.
We are a small VC firm leading seed and Series A deals in SaaS and marketplace companies. We love having the agility to make quick decisions. You should too. We love nimble, scrappy, early-stage founders — you are the ones that have the hunger and creativity to build a business out of nothing.
We respect authenticity.
The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be.
Authenticity is the only path to meaningful and sustainable success. There are too many pretenders in the world. We don’t claim to be anyone we’re not. You shouldn’t either. Let’s have an honest conversation about your business: the vision, the growth, and the challenges.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Talk is cheap. Failure is expensive. We’ve seen the relentless drag of the hype cycle destroy former high-flyers. We prefer solid business fundamentals over flashy presentations and buzz. Vanity metrics are cute, but we’d prefer to talk about customers and engagement.
We're in it for
the long run.
Difficulties are just things to overcome, after all.
We invest in companies with a big, audacious vision that aim to create a legacy. We know the path to get there is fraught with difficulty, and we will be committed every step of the way. We’re honored to have shared the entrepreneurial journey with extremely talented and passionate founders.
