Criteria

We partner with early-stage founders who are making their mark on the world. As an investment thesis, we look for multiple points of disruption to occur that were never possible before.

Want to see that the founder understands the market primers, communicated well, and was honest & listened well to them during the first meeting.

“If the founding team is fond of playing in space, is listening to their customers, is listening to the market, and iterating on their product, we want to back them. You learn a lot more from failure than success.”
