our values

honesty

Transparency is at the root of our values. We believe in challenging ideas, collaborating, and openingly reflecting together, committing to direct and honest communication in order to grow and achieve success.

empathy

By choosing to activate empathy, we strengthen the muscle that helps solve problems from the right perspective, valuing the power in the approach of putting yourself in someone else's shoes.

Open Mindedness

We open a wide door to new ideas and information. We understand that in order to find solutions, we must challenge ourselves and approach every situation with the goal to learn something new.

Accountability

You can rely on us to get the job done. We believe that through accountability we can achieve great things as a team by taking responsibility and strengthening our relationships to ourselves and others.

Trust

Trust is the currency that fuels all of our interactions. We are committed to authenticity and vulnerability when it comes to solving problems. When there is high trust, there is high productivity, growth, and reward.

We're more than investors — we're partners.

We partner with top-notch founders who have brilliant ideas that solve big problems. We come in at the ground floor because we understand how to grow disruptive businesses from an idea all the way through execution.
