Big Thinking. We are interested in companies who are at the stage of development where ideas matter. The size of the idea really matters, and a demonstrated ability and plan to pull it off will be palpable. We are are looking to identify the companies and teams that have the markers that would indicate the tenacity and market size to build a large, sustainable business, deeply rooted in technology.  We rarely invest in companies without at least one technical co-founder.

Real Progress. We believe that the best companies will need multiple rounds of capital. The market, and the “Series A Crunch” has driven many companies to achieve more in the angel and seed stage. As a result, our expectations are high for the progress that can be shown prior to a seed round. Our expectation is that your product is launched or soon to launch.  We help to bring together a syndicate in quality situations with certain patterns and contours.


For over ten years, we have been investing in, and advising early stage companies. We typically invest our own capital.  In 2017, after seeing a gap in early institutional capital for the technology sector, we founded and launched Grit Capital Partners.


Congratulations to Grit Portfolio Company, Niche on their $35M Series C led by Radian Capital.
