  • About

    Serially successful entrepreneurs with repeat exits. Turned Founder-First Investors.

    We are founders first and understand what it takes to actually build, scale and successfully take a company to exit - repeatedly. We're not big into performance theater around startups or fundraising - most of it is marketing at best, but most often a disservice to entrepreneurs. We understand opportunities from both sides of the table - as founders and as investors - and use that experience as a resource for all parties.

     

    Focused on impact from deep socio-demographic drivers meeting emerging technology including: Reinventing Career, Millennial Potpourri, AI Tech, IoT Tech, Distributed / Decentralized Tech. Offices in Portland, ME, and Louisville, KY, with event space blocks from Churchill Downs in a historic bourbon bar named after a horse.
