Our Approach

We’ve reimagined the role of a venture capital firm. We partner with early-stage, pioneering companies that will benefit from our thematic focus and deep industry network.

We invest early

Seed, Series A, or beyond, we prefer companies with market-ready solutions and early customer adoption.

Enabling the enablers

Our companies empower businesses to better serve their customers.

We don’t lead

We typically do not lead rounds, but we always invest with conviction.

Diligence that works for you

We engage our network (not yours) to inform our decision making.

Partnering if we can help

We only invest if our network and focus is relevant to you.
