How We invest

Time to Success
We favor investments with well understood timelines, teams that can execute to those timelines, and with timelines requiring fewer externalities such as market development.

Culture and Collaboration
We prefer investments where the company’s culture includes working with other companies, presenting at industry events, and is otherwise actively engaged in one or more communities. We prefer not to make investments where a policy of secrecy or a culture of reclusiveness applies.

Synergy with the Fund
We prefer investments that provide resources such as people, places, and partnerships which increases the Funds’ ability to continue to pivot, promote, and/or build new partnership opportunities.

Leveragability and Cross-Pollination
Along with synergy and cross-pollination, we seek investments that provide building blocks not only for the marketplace but other companies in our portfolio.
