Guidelines

Bullet We value simplicity and clarity – if it takes more than 5 minutes to get us excited about your business, you might be trying to do too many things…
Bullet Entrepreneurs must know what they are talking about – and have a clear understanding of their marketplace, their competitors and the financial dynamics of the industry
Bullet Companies must provide a unique solution to an existing urgent need. We don't invest in companies which try to change consumer behavior or create a new consumer need
Bullet We tend to focus on companies and markets where we have a strong experience base and ability to add value. Speaking broadly, this tends to focus us around technology-based, marketing focused companies – with an emphasis on enterprise software
[Note: We reject more deals for this reason than any other. We only invest in what we know -- and a rejection from us doesn't mean your business won't succeed...it just means we can't help it succeed]
Bullet We tend to be active investors. We believe our insight and expertise are far more valuable than our capital – and we look for entrepreneurs who feel the same and want our help
