Founded as a tech company. Built like the startups we fund.

What started as a quest to provide more value to founders grew into an entirely new AI venture capital model that propels founders through the toughest parts of building a company with the right people, programs, and technology.

We started in 2013 as a bootstrapped startup with one goal: disrupt venture capital.

We believed that applying unmatched data and technology to address the top pain points of early-stage startups would produce an unfair advantage and outsized success for our portfolio.

Since launching our first fund in 2015, we have scaled quickly to over $2.1B in assets under management. We continue to build products and scalable processes to help our companies with the early stages of their journey.
