The People's VC

We look for founders who are cash efficient, scrappy, and pragmatic. We invest in SaaS companies with ARR of $3mm to $30mm. We can lead or follow. We'll do traditional growth rounds and 'special situations' like inside rounds, small rounds, rushed rounds, corralling investors with our term sheet, extensions, and cap table clean up. We can commit in 3 weeks and our check is $1mm to $4mm. We'll invest anywhere in the first world. We welcome hearing from founders directly and don't require a warm intro.
