Advisor Partners

We believe that operators on the ground are best positioned to identify the ideas we should back. Our Advisor Partners are product, marketing, and sales leaders who help us source, diligence, and support our startups. They’re the ace up our sleeve when it comes to making asymmetric bets.

These operators are able to identify emerging companies and trends better than any full-time investor. They’re also equipped to advise founders on everything from industry-specific knowledge to hiring and managing a team.
