We’ve developed a new approach to investing in world-changing ideas, which we call the Super Angel Approach.  Looking at the world through the eyes of the entrepreneur, we’ve filled a widening gap between Angel investors and venture capital firms.  But we help companies with more than just fundraising:  we help them discover, refine, evolve, and master the core elements of their businesses so they will be in the best possible position to one day “open the floodgates” to market disruption and dominance.
Some of the world’s most exciting new companies have embraced our approach.  If you have a game-changing idea and a passion for building a truly legendary company, contact us.
