More than anything, we invest time - lots of it. In addition, we typically invest capital in exchange for equity. Amounts vary greatly depending on the opportunity, its maturity, the market and other factors. However, previous examples range anywhere from $25k to $250k in exchange for 0% to 15% equity. We offer multiple funding options, with models that work for both seed stage opportunities and more mature ventures.
We are actively seeking individuals and companies with the passion, resources, and / or the ability to assist our startups.
Our mentor network covers all verticals and we continue to actively pursue new advisers open to helping new ventures.
Our network includes over 300 of the most highly regarded individual, family office, VC and private equity investors.
We are always looking for best in class resources and business tools to source on behalf of our founders and teams.
