Established in 2004, we seek to invest with great entrepreneurs in big ideas of tomorrow by partnering with key-node VCs across the early-stage ecosystem. We will invest in both established and emerging venture funds who we believe have developed founder preference and generate repeatable access to innovative entrepreneurs. We will also invest directly or co-invest in select companies that are sourced from our extensive network of relationships.
We will invest in both established and emerging VC funds across sectors. We primarily focus on backing early-stage managers, typically micro-VCs, with fund sizes of less than $300 million and often much smaller.
We will leverage our network to invest directly or co-invest in select high growth companies across sectors. We will primarily invest in early-growth stage rounds (Series A+) through later-stage growth rounds.

Relationship Driven Approach to Venture
Over the past several years, we’ve seen an explosion of new investor talent in venture, particularly at the early stage. We believe this growing network of emerging managers, micro-VCs, and solo-GPs, has woven a new fabric that acts as an organizing layer in early-stage venture. We have found that navigating the expanding early-stage venture ecosystem requires existing reputation, participation, and constant relationship building. Our team is dedicated to fostering and building partnerships with early-stage key-node managers that exhibit strong founder-preference. We believe these venture funds and the founders they back will define a new era of venture.
We seek to be a strategic partner in our managers' and founders' networks. We often help connect our partners with relevant parties such as peer VC funds, investors, and potential customers.
At the early-stage, we believe it’s important to keep an open mind to potential sources of future innovation. We build diversified portfolios across sectors and new industries but have also built strong thematic convictions.
Our team is dedicated to identifying and investing in key-node VC funds, which we define as early-stage managers that have developed founder preference, demonstrate a unique value-add, and in turn, generate repeatable access to top companies. Given our bias for early-stage (pre-seed, seed, series A), we believe these managers punch above their weight class relative to their fund size and often win allocations over / alongside established venture platforms. As a result of the firm’s reputation, experience, and connectivity in the asset class, we have built a deep pipeline of both domestic and international micro-VCs that we believe will form the next great generation of VC managers.
