We see many talented product designers, developers, scientists and academics with great ideas and serious chops, but without the experience, bandwidth or reflex to focus on building the business around a powerful product. That’s where we come in.
We are looking for outstanding product designers, scientists and engineers innovating in a space in which they have deep knowledge and experience applied to other products. This may your first or second startup. You have the product expertise but you need help with building a business.
Your product has the potential to scale globally and rapidly once product-market fit is achieved.
We are open to pre-revenue or post-revenue startups, but want to be the first non-family and friends capital invested.
We want to be actively involved in booting up the business. This can take on many forms depending upon where you need help; from business development to hiring key team members to financing to operational setup.
We are interested in seeing an early version of your product or service. We want to give our input on how to develop a business around it.
We have a strong preference for platforms that are trying to break or innovate around social, environmental, health or educational barriers.
We love SaaS business models, but are open to others.
