How We Build Companies
How We Build Companies

We create awesome companies from scratch. We partner with talented teams and build companies together as hands-on co-founders.

Ideas

We found companies based on our own ideas and ideas from engineers, designers and founders we partner with.


Experiment

We pick and experiment with just a few ideas at a time. We kill the experiments that don’t work, we build and grow the ones that do.


Launch

When we see clear signs of product market fit, we launch the company with the team who built the project and invest in it.


Scale

We continue to support our companies as hands on co-founders and provide shared resources including growth, design and back office.
