For start-ups and growing ventures, we leverage over 600 professionals and partners in 14 offices to empower you with tools to build your vision. You will have access to resources in software engineering, product development, finance, corporate governance, capital raising, and global expansion.


We inject capital and ongoing investment to fuel your company's growth. Let us advocate for you within the venture capital community, connect you with other founder-friendly VCs, and assist with complex financing rounds. Founders should be focused on building a sustainable enterprise with minimal distraction.


We are a research-driven firm. Our investment analysis is informed by a proprietary methodology – with a track record that reflects our abilities as capital allocators and venture advisors.

We help founders build their vision

  • Our Founder Control™ and Vision Control™ methodologies empower founders with valuable mechanisms to build their vision of the future with minimal distraction or interference – within the parameters of good corporate governance.
  • With a view to preserving the vision of company founders – we help structure financing rounds and share-based compensation arrangements, engage in board interactions, and manage financing negotiations. 
  • From the vantage point of voting control residing with founders and/or founder-friendly VCs – we provide insight into corporate governance mechanisms, shareholder agreements, term sheet negotiations, and other contractual arrangements.
