What do we look for?

We are looking to invest in startups which meet all or most of the following criteria:

  • The business addresses a large multi-billion-dollar total addressable market. This may mean addressing a large existing market or a market which will likely become large in the next 10 years. It is ok to start with a smaller market segment if there is a credible strategy to expand
  • The business has raised Seed or Series A funding but has not yet raised Series B (we can invest in priced rounds, SAFE and convertible notes)
  • The business is primarily focused on serving the United States market
  • The business has actual or potential network effects in its business model. We believe that network effects create strong barriers to entry for competition in technology companies
