What’s a bad idea?
What’s a good story?
What’s a great outcome?
Thesis + Values
Let’s start with our values. We have three big ones. They’re not for everyone, but for the people we work with and invest in, they’re everything:
Total transparency: From our LP pitch deck to our investment assessment, we show how we operate to demystify the world of venture capital and keep ourselves and our startups hard core honest. Transparency begets accountability.
Radical candor: We love Kim Scott’s framework of feedback, radical candor, which calls for saying what you think while also giving a damn about the person you’re saying it to. Radical candor keeps bullsh*t at bay and excellence underway.
Better together: As the African proverb says, “If you want to go far, go together.” We seek collaborative startups, humble founders, and diverse teams who know great outcomes require a bunch of brilliance.
Now for what we invest in. We have a simple formula as our “North Star”:
Our vision is for people and the planet to live better and last longer.
We invest in Series A stage startups in healthtech and climate tech with checks around $5 million.
