Founders Backing Founders

Where founders get their first fund.

Founders start with a $2M fund. If they make great investments, they’re eligible for a second fund up to $10M. There’s also follow-on capital available for breakout companies in their portfolios.

We teach founders how to invest and provide back-office services, so founders can focus on investing. There’s no pressure to invest—founders focus on their company and invest at their own pace.
