We look for great teams in love with big problems.
Human-scale venture capital means building closer relationships with fewer teams, from smaller funds with more concentrated risk. In our model no one is disposable; we, our limited partners, and our entrepreneurs all make money together, or none of us do. The bad news is we can only get behind a small fraction of the opportunities we see, but the good news is the people and opportunities we do commit to are truly special. Here's who we're behind so far...
