Strategy

Asymmetric brings strategic partnership to every stage of your company's growth. From getting your first customer to going public, we’ll be right there with you.

What we're excited about

Software

Though nearly a decade has passed since “software is eating the world”, the reality of most legacy industry operating models remains static and offline. The increasing commercial relevance of data and predictive analytics is driving a revolution in how businesses operate.

Marketplaces

We know marketplaces. The proliferation of digital marketplaces is reducing search costs and catalyzing efficiency gains across sectors. As digital adoption accelerates, we see significant white space for continued marketplace ascension in the coming decade.

Healthcare IT

Similar to other high fixed cost legacy industries, much of healthcare services remains in need of advanced technology. We see patient services and shifting payor models as ripe areas.

Fintech

We expect continued disruption of the finance function, including payments, embedded fintech tooling, products serving the CFO suite, and insurtech.

Our value add

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.

When we invest

Structural Change, Large Markets

Early Stage

We believe Series “letters” have become less meaningful over time; however, we expect to invest from the typical Seed through Series B.

Structural Change, Large Markets

The most significant opportunities result from durable trends reshaping the largest industries. We look for evolutions measured in decades.
