Investing in powerful, positive change that endures
Our Approach to Company Building
Our creative approach to supporting founders and building businesses is born of the depth of experience among our team alongside an ongoing commitment to unconventional thinking. Creativity leads to the less obvious answers and connections, enabling us to bring solutions into the world that wouldn’t exist otherwise.
We are openly generous with our advice, experience, and connections, believing that time and effort invested in ambitious, talented people will always bear fruit over the long-term. This is true of our interactions with each other, as well as with those outside of our firm.
We are comprehensively engaged and supportive — personally and professionally — inside and outside of the business. Our lifelong relationships with founders are fueled by the genuine empathy that comes from our own experiences building and operating businesses, and by our shared visions of a better world.
Changing the world requires insane ambition, and we meet the audacity of our founders with our own formidable ambition. We believe in the potential for innovative software and services to create meaningful societal change, so we take what we do seriously; we never do anything half-right or half-hearted. It’s our privilege to play a role in shaping the future for the better.
While others might “move fast and break things,” we move intentionally and build things. We never lose sight of our responsibility and the opportunity to make a positive difference — for our entrepreneurs, our investors, our people, and society. The product we make on our best day is change.
Our team is comprised of talented individuals with varied experiences — not just as operators, founders, professional investors and CEOs, but as authors, athletes, parents, musicians, and even an Academy Award-winning filmmaker — all collaborating and co-creating on a daily basis. Different backgrounds beget diverse thinking that leads to better decisions and outcomes.
