We’ve spent the past decade redefining old-line industries (from financial platforms like Dwell – acq. by Blackstone – to technology platforms like Roofstock and Lessen). We know what it’s like to be in the trenches. Our goal is to share our learning and relationships with the founders building the next generation of category-defining businesses.
We write pre-seed, seed, and Series A checks to founders building category-defining platforms. We go as early as idea-stage.
We help founders access scalable capital channels and provide on-going capital markets advice across business cycles.
We are builders at heart and believe in pairing our vertical expertise with exceptional ideas and operators.
Roofstock is the leading online marketplace for investing in residential real estate assets, facilitating nearly $3bn in transactions on the platform. Co-founded by Gregor Watson and Gary Beasley in 2015.
Lessen is a repair, maintenance and renovation marketplace and fintech platform for the residential real estate industry. Co-founded by Gregor Watson and Jay McKee in 2019.
Flock Homes is a retirement solution for landlords – enabling owners to exchange their homes for shares in a managed real estate portfolio. Founded by Ari Rubin in 2020.
Financial Systems: Friction-filled transactions make real estate opaque and illiquid. Let’s bring affordability and accessibility to real estate through technology that reshapes how we rent, own and invest.
Human Capital: Built world industries face labor shortages and aging workforces – we believe in technology that unleashes creativity and productivity for the people that power our communities.
Decision-making: Data can bring accountability, sustainability and intelligence into decisions – let’s bring the power of AI and ML to a trillion-dollar industry running on pen-and-paper.
