001 — Ideate
We generate and source hundreds of business ideas through our venture partner network, and select the few with potential to become $10B businesses that advance human potential.
002 — Explore
We work with entrepreneurs to explore high-potential businesses that fit their expertise; “getting out of the building” with customer development, interviews and prototypes.
003 — Validate
We provide entrepreneurs with a stipend to run an MVP to de-risk the business, build the product, acquire early customers, and prepare for launch. The entrepreneur stipend unlocks founding talent that couldn’t otherwise afford 18 months without a paycheck.
004 — Launch
We invest $250-500k in each venture, and setup the books, legal, and HR. Founders typically own >50% equity stake, depending on their founding team and investment amount – skipping straight to growing their business, without the early funding slog.
005 — Grow
We provide ongoing founder coaching, operational playbooks, recruiting and fundraising support to help founders grow their own skills as they grow their companies.
For 3-9 months, you’ll be working directly with our general partners, talent collective, and coaches to co-found a company.
If we mutually find an idea we’re all excited about, we will invest up to $500k with the potential for substantially more when company milestones are met.
