early stage investing

Early stage investing encompasses seed, startup, angel, and first round investing. It’s a broad term that can be confusing. Our approach to each of these issues further defines exactly how we approach the early stage venture capital business.

But what does early stage investing really mean? It means different things to different people. For us, early stage investing means putting capital to work in a company well before it is fully formed and therefore participating in the value creation that comes with developing a new business.

We are thesis driven investors who have a very specific set of business characteristics we look for. If a company fits into our “sweet spot” (meaning it aligns well with our investment thesis and has the business characteristics we look for), we are more than willing to take on the risk of market development, business development, management team development, and business model development.
