Exceptional people.
Asymmetric outcomes.

No two companies follow the same path to success.
We partner with founders defining their own trajectories.
Arrow Down

We partner with thoughtful outliers solving the biggest problems in their industries.

We recognize and embrace that building a company is complex and requires a broad diversity of skills. Bringing our own experiences as founders and operators, we support every part of the journey to building a sustainable business that can endure for decades.

What we value

We tend to disproportionately value structured thinkers who make decisions probabilistically not deterministically and are deliberate about testing specific hypotheses.

Intellectual Rigor
Intellectual Rigor

We look for exceptional founders with contrarian insights. We believe disruption occurs when fresh thinkers re-examine the fundamental underlying assumptions that may have underpinned industries for decades.

Creative Thinking
Creative Thinking

There is only one quality we won’t compromise on. We care about scrappiness and intelligence just as much as the next VC, but integrity matters most.

"Working with Asymmetric has been a uniquely great experience. It means a lot to have investors who get what we're doing and believe in the mission because they've felt the same pain. Asymmetric is my first text for advice or guidance."

01

Operational

As founders and former operators, we partner with portfolio companies across all core operations: everything from hiring, KPI dashboards, and to go-to-market.

02

Strategic

The journey of a VC backed company often includes several critical decision points, with implications across product, go-to-market, and operations. We relish the opportunity to partner with you on these choices.

03

Financial

We are excited to be a data driven partner for all short and long term financial considerations.  This includes investment pace/burn, equity, venture debt, and future follow-on fundraises, among others.

01

Perfect Timing

The path to success is rarely linear. We like to invest after you have traction, but before you’ve found product-market fit. That’s the sweet spot.

02

Supportive
Partnership

We do more than write checks. We’re there for you. We take personal accountability to make your company successful.

03

Unparalleled
Network

Our network is your network. We have successful founders, world-class operators, and growth-stage capital partners in our community. When it’s time to scale, we’ll connect you to the right people.

Asymmetric Team

In Our Own Words

Building a company is rarely linear. We know because we’ve been founders, employees, later stage investors, and limited partners in the past. We started Asymmetric to be a different kind of venture capital firm.

We aim to be helpful, optimistic, and respectful thought partners. The networks we amassed before we started Asymmetric – across tech, private markets, and the institutional investor community – are some of our best and most differentiated assets. We bring our past experience and networks to the table for every company we back, and think we can help to create truly asymmetric outcomes.

To be clear, we’re in the business of seeking excellence. But we’ve also learned over time that excellence only matters when coupled with kindness and integrity.  We’re hyper focused on maintaining the transparent, respectful, hardworking, informal, and fun culture of our firm, and sharing it with our founders, Advisor Partners, co-investors, and limited partners.  Companies who share that ethos, and truly understand the mechanics and broader trends affecting their space, are the best partners for us.

We genuinely enjoy working together as a team and are excited to bring that dynamic to the companies we back.
