Criteria

We serve and invest in early-stage founding teams with at least one underrepresented minority founder.
On average, diverse founding teams realize 30% higher returns.
We invest at Pre-Seed and Seed because it’s where diverse founding teams have the greatest need and established VCs have the hardest time. According to AngelList, established VC firms fail to outperform other firms at these stages.We know what great startups look like because we’ve invested in them.We read the latest academic papers & industry research to form hypotheses. We update a proprietary database of metrics from 2k+ (and growing) early stage startups to form benchmarks.We use empirically-based guardrails to filter our deal flow. We require majority vote from deal team members for startups to progress in each step of our diligence process, including investment.
