We have decades of collective hands on operating experience. We have built successful category leaders, grown early stage companies to scale and have overseen dozens of successful acquisitions. Collectively we have invested in or have commercialized hundreds of disruptive new products. And we have independently come to understand one key yet underappreciated fact which is vital for a startup’s long term success:
Business model innovation is just as essential as technological innovation.
We have seen plenty of well capitalized, early stage companies with strong IP, fail to capture the value they created as a direct result of flawed business modeling. We therefore understand that we must invest in people building business, not just technology. Regular meetings, brainstorming and strategic sessions, business introductions and day to day guidance, right up through your preparations for subsequent funding rounds.
