Early-Stage Venture-Capital Investors

Our Thesis Areas

We are thesis investors, which means we focus on select investment themes—including fintech, marketplaces, digital health, new enterprise, and more. Are these the only areas in which we invest? No. But these are the domains in which we have the deepest knowledge and strongest networks.

Our partners have collectively founded multiple companies before becoming VCs, made roughly 70 venture investments, served on more than 60 boards, and helped more than 35 startups to successful exits via M&A or IPO. We want to put that experience—and passion—to work for you.
