For Founders, By Founders

Our mission is to be the best pre-scale investors out there. That means our focus is on helping founders lay the best foundations for their companies to scale and succeed.

Been there, done that

We founded companies. Scaled them. Took them public, sold them, and managed multi-billion dollar businesses.

So we know how difficult your journey is. Those first steps of trying to build something game changing. And we love the challenges involved. That’s why we focus exclusively on supporting pre-scale startups.What is pre-scale?
Everything that comes before a ready to execute plan for marketing, selling and servicing customers in a repeatable way.

Contributing our unique combination of experience, network, and tools, we help exceptional founders lay the best foundations for their companies to scale and succeed.
