    Why We're Here

    Our commitment is to be the early support for founders we wish we had.

    As experienced operators, our mission is to be the most helpful first-check investor to exceptional founders everywhere. We leverage our experience and networks to support ambitious entrepreneurs at the earliest stages with capital, connections, and care. We have a natural affinity for founders who face the same challenges we did—underdogs who lack the frameworks, relationships, and access to capital that are essential for building great businesses.



    We are a high-conviction investor, providing meaningful early checks that allow founders to close rounds quickly and get back to doing what they do best—build great companies.
