Who we are
The thing that sets us apart is experience. Unlike many firms we are entrepreneurs with hands on experience in starting disruptive businesses and seeing them through to exit. Our goal is to identify and back new disruptive businesses by providing capital, support and experience to help entrepreneurs succeed.
Both Michael and Dan Dempsey have over twenty years of success in establishing new businesses and bring a wealth of experience to assist new entrepreneurs to avoid the pitfalls that will inevitably appear as they grow. Having this direct experience in starting our own ventures is what sets us apart from other firms who are experienced making investments not successfully running a business.
We work closely with all our CEO's bring our expertise, experience and networks to the companies to make sure they achieve success by creating businesses that are built to last.
We are focused on advising growth stage founders and teams that have passion and conviction about using technology to disrupt existing models and creating business value. Our previous successes have all been based on identifying a market need and establishing a innovative solution to meet that need.
We partner with great management teams to manage risk, drive performance and create value.
What we do:
Invest- We partner with entrepreneurs at growth stages - when founders have developed a business model and are looking to accelerate their growth all the way through exit. We provide seed capital, and lead or participate in downstream equity financings (e.g. Series A and later stages)
Connect - Through our many years in business have established a network of advisors unparalleled in reach and reputation, and is an asset we provide to the businesses we invest in.
Advise - We are entrepreneurs and business operators with extensive experience in Strategy, Sales and Marketing and Product Management. We have founded and successfully sold companies. We informally advise all our teams, and take a more active advisory role when asked and when we can accelerate a companies growth.
