What We Can Help With

I only need capital. Can you help?

Yes. If you only need funding and are willing to part with equity we can invest if we like you, your team, and your business model.

I don’t have a business. Only an idea. Are you interested?

Yes. We’re happy to have a chat about a project that may only be at the idea stage. Contact us and we can let you know if we’re interested in learning more.

I don’t need funding and don’t want to give up equity. Does that mean we can’t work together?

Our preference is to take an equity stake in the businesses we work with. That doesn’t mean we can’t find a way to work together. Just ask or let us know how you think we can help.

How big is the team?

Very small. We don’t need a big team to do what we do best. If you need help to expand we can often connect you with experts that can help.
