Who We Are

  • We're a startup investment firm focused exclusively on the pre-seed stage.
  • With a portfolio of 600+ pre-seed investments and growing.
  • Pre-seed isn't our farm system; it's our bread and butter.
  • It's all we've done, all day, every day, since 2012.
  • We focus on US and Canadian companies. We do make some investments in Western Europe, Israel, and Australia, typically via accelerators or other partners.
  • We strive to treat founders the way we would want to be treated.
  • We don't waste time. If we're not going to invest, we say so as quickly as possible. If we are going to invest, we just get it done without delays.
