Investment Focus – Companies
Company Investment Criteria
Stage: We typically invest in companies at Seed or Series A stage that have $500K+ in annual revenue and proven product market fit.
Investment Size: Our usual check size for a first-time investment is ~$1 million. We invest through a Venture Fund and through a special purpose vehicle (SPV) structure that aggregates our investors’ contributions.
Geography: We invest in companies whose primary operations and core business takes place in the USA are the focus of our investments.
Impact: We are looking for companies with strong potential for achieving both compelling financial return and tangible impact. We prefer to invest in companies taking on upstream challenges requiring systemic solutions.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Justice (DEIJ): We focus on founders that are deeply committed to DEIJ and prioritize investing in diverse founders with lived experience in the issues they are solving for. We invest in teams that are willing to engage with values-aligned investors around their DEIJ practices, including policies, data collection, and culture.
Non-Competitive with Portfolio: We do not invest in direct competitors to our current portfolio companies.
