  • why now?

    founders want more from you

    in a world where capital is quickly becoming a commodity, founders are desperately seeking more from their VCs. the best VCs add value beyond the board meeting - from helping hire senior management to connecting founders to potential key customers.

    you are already behind the competition

    of the early-stage tech funds represented in Forbes Midas 2017 list, 65% have resourced a dedicated platform function. as the best deals become more and more competitive, it is increasingly difficult to differentiate. founders are savvy in investor due diligence - they will hear from your portfolio about how you are (or aren't) directly helping them grow their companies.

    1:1 does not scale

    it's great that your partnership has strong working relationships with your founders - but that doesn't scale as your portfolio grows. platform harnesses network effects - your knowledge base, community, and reach only grows with each investment.
