Founder & Team Screening
The first step in our process is to send our initial screening form to a potential member of our portfolio. Even if a business doesn’t fit our area of focus, we may ask to be added to the investor updates, as we might be interested in investing in the future. Our fund thesis is driven by a founder-first mentality. We evaluate the entrepreneur based on criteria we believe will give them the best chance to succeed. After we’ve evaluated the founder(s), we’ll cross reference the industry to make sure the opportunity exists. Once we’ve completed an assessment using the probability rankings which we have defined, we use the rankings as a historical reference point to calibrate trends among founders, and we’ll use this information to decide if we move forward.
