Our Approach

We deploy a company building approach to investing. We’re a team of builders with a unique perspective as operators who can both back and build the companies in our portfolio. We truly invest in founders first — committing to back an entrepreneur and then build out the ideas together.

Company Builder

Building as a Co-Founder

Our Company Builder is where we spark new ideas, validate them, and provide hands-on operational support to founders as they get their companies off the ground.

Our Fund

Investing as a Partner

Our fund gives our co-build companies additional backing, and also lets us invest directly into early stage companies that we believe have the power to change their industries.
