Who we are

What we do
We invest together in early stage companies with brilliant, passionate leaders. We rally around the companies we invest in, supporting them with unique expertise and strategic guidance.
What we're looking for
We review founder-led companies, at seed and early A rounds, across a broad range of industries, with a bias towards passionate entrepreneurs who are supported by teams with substantial domain expertise. We look for products and services that demonstrate clear purpose, market demand and massive potential. We love teams that leverage consumer intelligence and operational excellence to establish and grow a direct, one-to-one connection with consumers. We work with businesses that are prepared to benefit meaningfully from our support.
