We believe industry-wide change only happens with founders who want to build something bigger than themselves.
But compared to starting a company, growing one presents a whole new set of challenges.
Some of these simply require the intuition of a founder, while others need expert insight and the right competence in place at the right time. That’s where we believe we can help.
