Our Principles

 
#1

We take a humanistic approach by working closely with founding teams to help them accelerate towards their Series A, both personally and professionally

 
#2

Healthy founders equal healthy returns. We believe there is a causal relationship between continuous founder self-improvement and the performance of their companies.

 
#3

You can’t take a company further than you’ve taken yourself. We aim for a 0% burnout rate from our founders by 2022.
