As one of the oldest and most active early-stage investment firms in the Southeast, our investment philosophy has been honed from years of experience. We fund entrepreneurs who are applying technology and business model innovations to industries in the earliest stages of digital disruption with an emphasis on underserved places and stages.
We believe that talent, entrepreneurial spirit and world-changing businesses are not confined to the historical innovation epicenters. Many cities in North America have all the ingredients to be thriving ecosystems yet have been oft-overlooked by traditional venture capital firms. Our team and expanded network of boots on the ground have decades of experience finding, funding and supporting the best teams in these underserved regions.
Both seed stage and growth stage capital have never been more abundant. However, influxes of capital to traditional early-stage investors has raised the bar considerably for middle stages. As such, even great companies are often seeking additional capital beyond the seed and before growth stages to support their journey from initial product/market fit to scale.
