We focus on media, marketing, consumer products & services, and health care companies.
We are seed stage investors, have a core investment range of from $100K-$300K, and syndicate investments to $1 million.
We limit our investment activity to 3-5 companies per year so that we can provide active guidance and assistance to our partners.
We built a successful marketing services company from scratch and sold it.
So unlike many investors, we understand the challenges of building and operating a business, and determining the best ways to monetize it.
And now, we actively guide and invest in other entrepreneurs so that they can achieve their own successes.
