Where We Have Invested

The entrepreneurs we have partnered with over the last 20 years are hardworking and extremely smart. But even then they needed more time and resources to make an impact. With our support, they have increased their time horizons, allowing them to sustain their businesses.

We have been humbled by some of the outstanding exits our partner entrepreneurs have provided us. Nevertheless, we think that some of the most valuable lessons come from our failures; we are excited to share our experience with new teams.
