Companies are made up of the people in them with DNA injected by the founder. We aim to work with people that embody our beliefs.
We look to back people that possess the necessary traits to be successful, but that’s just part of it. We also want to like you. It’s a long, crazy journey. We might as well try to get along.
Not every business needs or should take investment capital from angels or institutional investors. Make sure your market is big.
Being big isn’t enough. Can you capture a significant portion of this market and monetize it? Have you thought through all facets of the market. We like to team up with experts in their fields.
Tackling a big market and having a strong team only begin to start the process of having a sustainable, big business.
How do you defend your market from competitors? If you are disrupting a field, how do you make sure you don’t get overturned in the process? Timing of your idea is crucial.
Taking funding from an investor is like a marriage. Not every relationship turns into marriage and for good reason. We encourage you to evaluate us as much as we evaluate us.
