We're interested in companies which have created innovative, sticky products that have achieved traction with paying customers. Recurring SaaS revenues with low churn is the perfect fit.
We love to work with tenacious founders, especially those who have bootstrapped their companies, operate at the highest level of integrity, and are both visionary and data driven.
If you are a lone wolf, it’s not a good fit. We are seeking great founders who seek both hands-on assistance and investment. We will bring skills that complement each other and our interests will be completely aligned.
WHAT WE LOOK FOR IN FOUNDERS
Highly technical founder who wants to change the world
Visionary and data driven
Bootstrapper with integrity
Operates with true grit and perseverance
Determined but willing to listen, adapt quickly and grow
Has working mobile, internet or software product with traction (ideally some initial revenue)
