We invest at seed and pre-seed nationally. Our focal areas are:
  • Digital health startups in the United States.
  • B2B startups in the United States.

After an introductory call, process is dependent on check size and the questions we have about your business. Every company has unique risks and opportunities. Our role is to discover and then assess them. This can take varying amounts of time based on the risks at hand and our network or expertise in the category. Broadly, we may:

  • ask for "homework" (analysis of risks and opportunities.)
  • invite you to speak to our network.
  • ask to speak to experts or customers in your network.
  • dive into your technical architecture and the technical moats in your product.
  • ask for a product demo.
  • will be interested in getting to know you and the team (potentially virtually.)

Our commitment is to be transparent about where we are in our process and act with high integrity. Please do let us know if you feel we have not done so.
