Since we launched our firm in late 2000, our focus has been on helping outstanding entrepreneurs build great companies. We are rooted in the strong belief that the entrepreneur is the customer and honored by the list of entrepreneurs that have selected us.
We are currently investing out of Fund II and our initial investments have ranged from as little as $35k to as much as $1 million. Typically, we invest $500k initially and $1.5 million over the life of a company. While we focus on early-stage companies we will always consider later stage opportunities and spinouts in which we partner with larger VC funds.
We deploy a very disciplined investment strategy, partnering with companies where we have significant knowledge and domain expertise. These industries include: software, e-commerce, digital media, mobile and healthcare IT. We are often the first investor to become involved with a company.
We carefully select and limit the number of companies in which we invest to ensure that our portfolio companies get the attention and resources they need to succeed. Our unique approach gives us one of the highest partner-to-company ratios in the industry.
