Our Engagement Principles
The process of obtaining funding is an important point in your company’s development. We understand how difficult it can be to run a business while also fundraising, so we strive to make it easier for you.
We try to make each meeting as constructive and helpful as possible. In many cases, we will be familiar with your market and business model. If your company falls outside of the areas of expertise that we describe in our Investment Strategy, we will work quickly to get up to speed on your market. We want to try to understand your business opportunities as well as you do.
We endeavor to be straightforward, responsive, and reliable. At all stages of our diligence, we will provide you with as much feedback as possible. It is often the case that we will meet with entrepreneurs and provide strategic advice and business model guidance weeks before financing options are discussed.
We make an effort to introduce entrepreneurs to our network of outside industry contacts. We have tremendous respect for entrepreneurship and while we cannot fund every entrepreneur we meet, we do try to offer as much help as possible.
