Pitches per Year

Portfolio Companies

Partnerships Brokered

Industry Verticals

We engage with growth-stage companies that are post-MVP and post-revenue, and pay particular emphasis on strong management teams. We predominantly invest in seed stage, Pre -Series-A through Series-B companies.

It is critical to align with the right partners, and strategic introductions need to be an integral component of the path forward. We proactively connect your company to the right capital providers, while providing operational support every step of the way. 

Blockchain

Blockchain, sometimes referred to as Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), makes the history of any digital asset unalterable and transparent through the use of decentralization and cryptographic hashing.  It has become a legitimate disruptor for industries like payments, cybersecurity and healthcare.

Consumer Packaged Goods

Consumer packaged goods (CPGs) is an industry term for merchandise that customers use up and replace on a frequent basis. While consumer demand for CPGs largely remains constant, this is nevertheless a highly competitive sector with multiple opportunities.

Agricultural Technologies

A number of global trends are influencing food security, poverty, and the overall sustainability of food and agricultural systems. To meet these challenges will require a concerted effort by governments, investors, and innovative agricultural technologies.

Our Approach

Validation:

We put an idea through its paces, testing customer demand, technical feasibility, business model, unit economics, market dynamics, investor interest, and more. We benchmark every idea against the performance of our past ideas to determine if it’s worth our time—and yours. With our expertise in financial modeling, we get into the minds of founders and their business models to ensure the perfect fit between company and market.

Scale:

Focus is the lifeblood of an early-stage company. Our recruiting, legal, and finance teams, along with our relationships with top service providers, allow founders to keep their eyes squarely on building the business.
