A community of founders & operators who care deeply about the next generation of local entrepreneurs

We believe the best people to invest in startups are people who have built startups.

It’s a simple premise, but it works.

If there’s one thing we have in common, it’s that we love building companies that matter. Together, we’re growing a community-powered venture fund fueled by some of the best founders & operators out there.

The capital we invest, the expertise we share, and the network we bring stem directly from the personal contributions of our community members, all of whom care about paying it forward, right in their own city.
