we are
belief - mission - values - driven


  • Phenomenal people build phenomenal businesses

  • We succeed only when those around us succeed

  • We are not always right, but we always work hard

  • We take big risks and follow our own conviction (not the crowd’s)

  • Relationships last a lifetime; deals come and go

  • Talk is cheap; results speak


  • To invest and develop phenomenal people and businesses

  • To attract, excite, and develop phenomenal team members

  • To deliver superior risk-adjusted returns to our investors


  • People-first: be accessible to all entrepreneurs regardless of background; invest in great people first, great ideas second

  • Independence: maintain always our obligation to dissent, be contrary (to a fault), and speak the truth (especially when hard)

  • Professionalism: observe the highest ethical standards in all that we do; client-service approach with entrepreneurs and investors

  • Growth (not perfection): encourage mistakes and place a large premium on learning, coaching, and development

  • One-firm: a non-hierarchical, meritocratic team culture
