We believe that the next tech boom will be led by founders that don’t fit the old Silicon Valley pattern.
This next wave will be more diverse in geography, gender, ethnicity and life experiences. They will be comprised of more women, minorities, and startups that are based outside of Silicon Valley, NYC, and Boston.
The new wave is already starting to trickle in and will swell in the coming decade.
Knowledge and grit are key
The two founder qualities that are irreplaceable are their experience of the problem space as well as their passion for bringing a solution to scores of customers or users. These two ingredients are the source of the product vision and leadership, which are required for a startup’s long-term success. Other skills such as design, engineering, marketing, sales, and operations can be brought in by the right people.
A different investment model
Beyond capital we support our founders with skilled resources to go beyond advice and help build internal capacity to execute on product and growth.
We go the extra mile to be champions and connectors for our teams long after we have invested in them.
Who’s behind all this?
The founding team has led the design and product development for nearly a 100 products across numerous verticals and stages from pre-seed startups to Fortune 500 corporations. We are experts at bringing all-star teams together with passionate visionaries to build mass-market products.
