Our mission

There's a growing gap between idea and pre-seed, equity-based funding. Many potentially successful businesses fail to cross this gap, and that means our world is missing out on impactful innovation. Our company creation model bridges this gap and empowers more founders to launch and succeed.


We don't care if you're a first-time founder, if you're tapped into notable networks, if you've recruited a co-founder, or if you've started building your tech. Here's what we do care about.


  • Scrappy
  • Evidence of grit
  • Strong founder/market fit
  • Obsessed with solving a problem
  • Desire to raise venture capital


  • Not yet in market
  • Solves a real problem
  • Time-to-market is 6 months max
  • Testable value proposition
  • Tech is a crucial component
  • Venture-fundable
  • US-based
