CFOs & Supporting Team With Unmatched Expertise

Our Experience

We understand owners or financiers.  We’ve worked with sales and business development leaders, put together partnerships, formulated comp plans, actively participated in off-sites, edited pitch decks, recruited talent, introduced other investors and lenders, and served as a midnight sounding board for plenty of founders in our roles.

Our Expertise

Collectively, we are a team of experienced operators and thought leaders having founded over a dozen companies and invested in over 100 others across various stages. We have been involved in equity and debt financings totaling AUM over $2B from seed rounds to Series D private fundings.

Our Motivation

We are passionate about working with founders and capital allocators at key moments of inflection or decision-making in their endeavors by aligning to their interests and focusing on the highest value inputs.  We only get involved if we like the people and the opportunity.
