Founder’s Board

We have assembled an exceptional Founder’s Board. This isn’t a ceremonial grab-bag of our friends. This is a collection of done-it-before experts who have all written a cheque to be part of our fund. They will be available to provide perspective on your growth plan, executional development and to make introductions to their networks. We think they can be difference makers in transforming our portfolio companies from moderate successes to blockbusters.
