The Anti-VC

We're the Anti-VC. 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+ of run-rate revenue and year over year growth of 50%+. We'll invest anywhere in the US or Canada, especially in markets most venture capital firms overlook. 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.

Strategic investors, defined as corporations that make venture investments, can be a valuable source of capital but are they critical? No.  We dug through the S1’s of 122 tech companies and found that only 22 of them had a strategic investor (an S1 is a doc filed with the SEC before going public).  The list…
