Founder Services Team

We don’t just sit on the sidelines, we’re here to help you win.

We have an expert Founder Services team designed to provide truly hands-on support at the early-stage. We pride ourselves on being devoted and engaged partners to our founders. We know what it takes to kickstart a new company, so we don’t simply consult with you from time-to-time or make a few introductions and then leave you alone to figure it out. We operate as an extension of the team when it comes to talent, go-to-market, PR, and fundraising support.
