Investment Process

We have a disciplined investment approach informed by experience.

We believe in a transparent process. When you speak with a member of our team, you will always know where things stand. If your company doesn’t fit our criteria, we will let you know why. For those companies that do fit our criteria, we will have a few initial calls, and then we’ll quickly jump into due diligence. Finally, our investment committee will vote on whether or not to move forward.

This process can be done as quickly as two weeks and sometimes takes up to two months, depending on how the company’s round is coming together. We write initial checks of $250K to $500K, and we reserve capital for follow-on funding.

Please see below for the criteria that we look for in prospective portfolio companies.

What We Look For

  • Startups raising seed round of $1 to $3M
  • A term sheet has been issued from a lead investor
  • Pre-money valuations no greater than $15M
  • A potential 30x CoC return for investors
  • Primary industry is B2B software
  • Initial indications of product-market fit (e.g., early revenues or customer acquisition)
  • Strong growth potential
  • Former entrepreneurial or directly relevant industry experience
  • A corporation located in the United States
