We invest in people before ideas.
We know the types of people we are looking for. We invest in experts — authentic founders who are the best at what they do. Having a big idea matters, but being the person who can make it a reality matters even more.
The journey is just as important as the destination.
Yes, the destination is critical: we are in the business of helping build world-changing companies that create tremendous value. That said, we recognize that it will not always be smooth sailing. We want to be there for every part of the ride. We strive to be the investor you want to call, not the one you have to.
We invest as a team.
We are an equal partnership – figuratively and economically. For the past twenty years we have built our partnership with equal title, equal pay, equal carry, and equal votes in every investment. We are not political and we have tremendous trust in one another. We choose to spend time with each other and our families outside of work. While one of us may sit on your board, each one of us is a resource at your disposal.
