The earlier we can invest, the more helpful we can be.
We’re founders and tech junkies — your first call, the coach in the corner, and a kick in the ass when you need it most. We don’t split angel, seed and pre-seed into separate categories — we provide support across the board.
Tough love is effective for achieving both great work and great relationships
We triangulate our view with believable people who are willing to disagree. We plan for the worst-case scenario to make it as good as possible. We regularly use pain as our guide toward quality reflection. If a number of different believable people say we are doing something wrong and we are the only ones who don’t see it that way, we assume that we are probably biased. We try to be evidence-based and encourage others to be the same.
