Our investment team typically becomes involved early in a company’s development. Many of our initial investments occur prior to product availability. Our investments typically range in size from $500,000 proof-of-concept projects and seed financings to $40 million venture growth rounds. We maintain a hands-on approach, a rigorous investment process, and a steadfast commitment to our portfolio companies. Time and time again, we have seen that promising entrepreneurs need more than financial backing to succeed. We pride ourselves on our ability to foster growth at all stages in the start-up company development cycle.
