Who we are and what we do

We are seasoned operators.

Squadra's team brings the experience to build technologies that make an impact, and companies that deliver results.

We work hand-in-hand with entrepreneurs to help them win. We roll up our sleeves to do the work that drives a business forward, and hit the ground to make connections that move the needle.

Whether introducing a key hire or building a new process, our network of executives and industry leaders works directly with our team, and our companies.

Our Team

We obsess over the process.

We leave no stone unturned as we seek great companies, and we dive deep to accelerate their growth.

Our experienced teams run a rigorous, data-driven process to find, analyze and win the deals that will have a massive impact on the world.

We are all-in. We collaborate with startup teams to create the infrastructure that positions companies for rapid expansion, and execute the tasks that help them drive forward.

Investment Process

We invest in the plan.

Squadra applies a growth-stage mindset at the seed stage to help entrepreneurs make their first 100 decisions.

By committing significant resources beyond the check, we are building a growth engine for startups. 

We work with startups to develop a joint strategic plan that positions companies to rapidly increase their value, and multiply their impact across industries. We work to drive operational efficiency, an enterprise mindset and a go-to-market strategy.

Portfolio Operations

We maneuver and influence a complex dual-use ecosystem.

Headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, Squadra is based in the heart of America's national security power center and cyber operations hub.

We have strong ties to the decision makers that shape policy, and the talent building the technology to complete the mission.

We foster relationships across government and commercial industries that help America protect her people, and lead in the world.


We take citizenship seriously.

Squadra is a team of conveners who dedicate time to the communities we care about, regardless of the quantifiable impact it has on us.

We are connectors, supporters and advisors. We treat entrepreneurs with respect in every interaction.

We want to meet you. Squadra organizes events in communities across the country, bringing together founders, operators, investors and policymakers. We welcome all to join us.
