The firm launched in 2011 as a family office and in 2014 they started taking on outside capital. The firm focuses most of their time in technology and other markets like manufacturing, energy, transportation, real estate and telecommunications. Their true bread and butter is investing in startup companies and small businesses that are believed to have long-term growth potential. One of the partners is viewed as a legend in the space for taking 5+ companies from Seed or Series A to $1 billion+ outcome!
