We work in the service of our limited partners and founders. We believe that venture capital is just another service business and we know service businesses well.
We are operators - so we like to help with operations. We help founders with everything that happens between board meetings: sales, marketing, HR, strategy, culture and beyond.
We spent the first 5 years of the firm’s life co-founding service companies to help startups scale and support the growing innovation ecosystem. Our services platform supports over 10% of all venture-backed companies in America today and we currently employ over 400 people. There are three ways that this platform helps founders:
- Through this platform we have hundreds of individuals that can help make introductions to potential partners, customer and acquirors.
- Our platform attracts a lot of talent and we pipe that talent out to the companies we back.
- Our service company CEO’s act as advisors, filling operating knowledge gaps in core areas such as accounting, tax, engineering, marketing, insurance and beyond.
