Who We Are
We focus on companies with $2mm+ of run-rate revenue and year over year growth of 50%+. We value founders that are cash efficient, scrappy, and pragmatic. We’ll invest anywhere in the US or Canada, especially in markets most venture capital firms overlook. We prefer leading $1mm to $5mm Series A or B rounds, but can also follow. We like plain-vanilla preferred stock in traditional growth rounds, inside rounds, recaps, and restructurings.
We’re currently investing out of our 5th fund and our check is $1mm. We can commit to a deal in as little as 4 weeks. Our portfolio is diverse and includes HR software, app tech, parking, sales/marketing software, apps, greeting cards, dating, e-commerce, and healthcare software. We welcome cold emails so reach out any time to firstname.lastname@example.org.
