Run and backed by helpful founders and operators

The syndicate is ran and backed mostly by founders and operators, who’ve gone through top accelerators like Y-Combinator and 500Startups, built startups from inception to exit, including unicorns and centaurs, and others who’ve scaled from $0 to $50M+ ARR.

Startups flock to us because they want to work with people they admire.

As investors, we can be best when we are out of the way, but helpful when needed. We are biased towards speed and outcomes, and leverage our community to help our portfolio grow. Don’t take our word for it, though:

We can feel the momentum behind - they closed our ticket in less than a day! The network has been invaluable, directly aiding our growth.

We go beyond writing the check

We know, every investor and VC says they will be helpful. Our approach is two-fold: (1) be transparent up front about what kind of help we can deliver, and (2) rethink how we create structure and incentivize our member founders & operators to invest their time in your startup not just for a virtual coffee, but on consistent and regular basis.

It's so much harder for investors to support companies when they haven't had the lived experience as an operator.
