We differentiate our firm from other early-stage investors by thinking and acting as if we are co-founders of the business. We move from the “investor” side of the table to the same side as the founding team. We invest time and energy getting to know founders and their ideas at a deeper level. We demonstrate a keen interest in their success – before we have decided to invest. We ask questions. We probe. We make suggestions. We leverage our experience and our networks.
We believe that winning the trust and respect of an entrepreneur creates favor for our firm. We have established a reputation as a collaborative investor that is a resource for entrepreneurs.
