Our world views
These ideas inform how we partner with founders
Markets are won on the field
It’s not the best products that win markets but the best go-to-market (GTM) execution. Finding product market fit is a necessary but not sufficient condition. Winning depends on outperforming competitors in the field. We work with our founders on designing and implementing the optimal GTM motion. This begins with assembling a strong team and defining sales process, product marketing, and growth tactics.
Exceptional teams build exceptional companies
Companies are people working toward a shared objective. If the objective is correct, the odds of achieving it improve with talented and compounding teams. We help founders hire the right people at the right time. This includes understanding what “exceptional” means in every functional area, learning how to manage effectively, and evolving as a leader at every stage.
Avoid unforced errors
There is no sense in repeating the mistakes made by those who came before you. Great founders accelerate learning from the experiences of others, adapting relevant insights and applying their own intuitions. We bring to bear our decades of experience as founders and company-builders to help you minimize unforced errors.
