There is no substitute for perseverance. With a “never give up” attitude, you can achieve whatever you set out to do.

This philosophy not only defines our spirit, but is an essential characteristic we look for in the people we invest in. At the end of the day, companies succeed when people do.  We help to bring the necessary resources, whether they be knowledge based, financial or strategic introductions to companies with the leadership and team that we believe can persevere and execute on their opportunity.
