Are We A Good Fit?

Here are our sweet spots for investments:

  • Investments from $25,000 to $500,000.
  • We prefer Seed or Series A rounds. No start-ups please.
  • We like both the “jockey” and the “horse”, but tend to favor the jockey. So tell us about yourself and your leadership team.
  • Social impact is preferred. Tell us what it might be and how you will measure and report it.
  • Reasonable valuations, please. No unicorns need apply.
  • Just as comfortable being the follower as the lead. If you have a lead, tell us who it is.
  • Bootstrap mentality, rather than future-raise dependency.
  • Lean start-ups, please apply!
  • We strive for quick due diligence and closings to minimize the impact of fundraising on the founders. We want you to “get back to work” as soon as possible.
  • We are “fancy pitch” adverse. Keep it simple and concise.
  • You should show a realistic path to profitability, preferably over a two to three year time frame.
  • Some current income is preferred. This shows market-based proof of your concepts.
  • While most of our investments are in the USA, we will invest, and have done so in other parts of the world.
  • We prefer emphasis on our current areas of interest, but we like new stuff too. Amaze us!
