The 7 T’s
What we look for when investing

Before you send us your pitch, ask yourself these questions. How many T’s does your startup check off?

At the core we are looking for great teams. Preferably founders that have profound knowledge and experience operating in the industry they are trying to disrupt

What is the scale of the problem? What is the Total Addressable Market (TAM)? This will help us understand the size of the opportunity. We are focused on ideas that target global billion $ markets

If you can show some proof of traction, be it early adopter feedback, initial paying customers, or the $100K MRR Series A milestone, it will help us better see a path to the billion $ addressable market

Is your tech rocket science or defensible in any way? What makes you unique? How do you plan to scale?

We want to see how your idea will transform the industry you are going after. Not just incrementally, but fundamentally. Will you win the market by being first or best?

Everything in life comes down to timing. Are you entering the market at the right time? Why is this the right moment?

Finally, we are a VC and we need to believe we can make a 10X return on our investment in your company.
