How We Do It

For our portfolio companies, there are three teams — the founding team, our team, and the combination of the two.
That means some days we’re pulled up to the table in a portfolio company’s office to dig into a marketing campaign and other days we’re working our network to get one of our CEOs in front of the CISO of a key future client.
