Who We Are Interested In
We believe the future belongs to the innovators. Innovators come from a myriad of backgrounds, spanning diverse experiences and generations. But there is one link: the desire to create something that will enhance the human experience. We work closely with and invest in entrepreneurs who are committed to driving their concepts forward.
Our investment thesis is focused on the development and "scale-up" of companies and concepts that have customers, early-stage proof of concept, and revenues of $1 million - $5 million dollars.
If you fit this model, we would like to have a conversation with you about your ideas, plans and aspirations. Unlike a traditional incubator or accelerator, we don't have formal classes or group cohorts (although we insist on deep, customized collaboration). We tailor our investment, mentoring and concept development approaches to fit your needs and that of the enterprise. We'll use our conversations and a few fundamental items to assess growth opportunity and fit, and to establish the best way for us to work together.
What We Offer
Simply put, we offer three things: investment resources, mentoring services, and brand development. With each unique opportunity, we collaborate with you to craft a plan and roadmap for growth. Together, we plan the work, then work the plan.
