Our Approach

We back good people with great ideas who aren’t afraid to do hard things.

We're category-agnostic, investing equally across the enterprise and consumer landscapes.

1

Discerning, but decisive.

We invest early and stay late — and when we do, we’re in your corner through the inevitable highs and lows.

2

We’ve been there before.

As operators ourselves, we give founders more of what they need and less of what they don’t. Our resources are your resources.

3

At home in New York.

No matter where they’re based, our founders embody New York’s audacity, endurance, and winning mindset. 

We’re a community of funders and founders who redefine categories — and create new ones entirely.
