ABOUT US

Some people love their cats.

For us, we just love building innovative tech companies. With years of in-the-trenches experience (and the battle scars to prove it), we’re an early-stage venture capital firm that partners with visionary entrepreneurs to accelerate growth, dodge risk, and achieve jaw-dropping results. We’re a non-traditional gang of proven entrepreneurs with a unique approach to seizing opportunity, driving innovation, and making this crazy world a little bit better.

Meow.

We partner with innovative entrepreneurs to accelerate growth, mitigate risk, and deliver meaningful results.

We may not be the right fit for you. And that’s okay.

We’re values-driven, and look to partner with entrepreneurs, investors, and collaborators who share our ethos. So instead of waiting until our third date, these are our core beliefs; the philosophy we live by:

Play like you want to be remembered.

We pursue big things that move the world and leave a mark, or we don’t do them. Think and act like we’re making history, and we will.

Don’t wait.

Take initiative, leap into action. Don’t wait for direction, permission, or a final roadmap to move forward. We are all responsible to initiate the change we seek.

Compress time.

Cultivate speed, reduce cycles, learn and grow faster, deliver freakish response times, demonstrate fire department urgency.

Obey the No Asshole Rule.

Lift others up instead of cutting them down. Support instead of destroy. Double down on humility and leave the ego on the sidelines. Positivity and teamwork drive performance. Life’s just too short for grumpy jerks.

Be the DaVinci of our craft.

Hold ourselves and each other to the absolute highest standards, stretch for more, create and deliver our body of work with artistry.

Outhustle by a full decimal point.

We may fall short on talent or skill or resources, but we never get out-hustled. Our grit cannot be tamed.

Figure it out.

There’s always a way… find it. Unwilling to accept norms or limits, seek the unexpected, challenge assumptions, defy traditions.

Guzzle truth serum.

Confront the brutal facts, deliver honest feedback, tell it straight, and skip the BS.

Use every drop of toothpaste.

Eliminate waste, maximize our resources, drive leverage.

Commit to 5X’ing.

Deliver 5X the value we extract for our company, clients, partners, community, industry, and planet. Leave it 5X better than you found it.

Own the outcomes.

We get shit done. We are accountable for results. We don’t whine or make excuses. We are relentless execution monsters.

Put ourselves out of business.

Play up, constantly learning, adapt fast, elevate each other. Remain dissatisfied. An insatiable appetite for growth and change; a deep distain for the status quo.

Spike the ball.

Put points on the board, finish strong, have fun, and savor the wins.

Don’t forget the dinner mint.

Surprise and delight, add something extra to what’s expected. Do these values resonate?
If so, let’s talk.

At its core, the tech business
is really a people business.
