Our Values

You're the Boss

The only one who should tell you what to do is your customer.

We Move Fast

Because each partner can speak for the firm (there’s no investment committee here), we can get to a “yes” in 24 hours.

Lead, Don't Follow

No project is too early or too ambitious. We aim to be your first term sheet. We lead rounds; we don’t wait for others to show social proof.

Conviction is Key

Once we get there, we stay there — in good times and bad.

A Steady Hand

We’ve been helping founders work through it since 1970.

Integrity Matters

Our back-channel references are even cleaner than our term sheets.

The American Dream is for Everyone

We believe entrepreneurship will be the great equalizer.

Listen More, Talk Less

When we speak up, it will be for a good reason.
