We back early-stage ventures
We back early-stage ventures with proof of concept, or a scrappy pilot in place, and a readiness to grow. Then we provide the clarity, capital, and connections they need to make it to their next stage. At every juncture, we reject the prescriptive expectations that most early-stage ventures are forced to measure up to, including perfectionism, urgency, and provable outcomes. Instead, we give them time, space, and encouragement to think audaciously.
In the current landscape, there are a number of programs designed for growth-stage ventures, and many of them trade ventures back and forth, but there is a gap in the market for seed- and early-stage ventures—that’s where we come in. We’ve been working with early-stage ventures for over 10 years. Equipping them to challenge the status quo is what we do best.
