We're not unicorn hunters and don't believe in high burn, uneconomic models that reach for market share. We look for solid businesses built by founders who are cash efficient, scrappy, and pragmatic. We focus on companies with $2mm to $20mm of run-rate revenue and year over year growth of 50%+. We'll invest anywhere in the US or Canada, and can look at international opportunities. We prefer leading $1mm to $10mm Series A or B rounds, but can also follow. We like plain-vanilla preferred stock in traditional growth rounds, inside rounds, recaps, secondaries, and restructurings. Unlike other VC, we like hearing from founders directly; email our Managing Partner any time at email@example.com.Who We Are
