Our approach to investing is simple. We look for scalable opportunities (ScOps). We want companies that fill a fundamental consumer or business need in the most efficient way. Cool technology just doesn't cut it - your product has to solve a real problem. We seek management teams that are smart, competitive and aggressive. We want to find people who love what they do and need to make a profound impact.
We bring a unique combination of assets to a startup company. Kevin O’Connor has been involved running his own startups for over 30 years so he understands entrepreneurs and founders very well - he’s been in your shoes. He has also invested in many companies and has sat on four public and many private company boards - so he understand investors. He has had tremendous success, along with some failures, and these experiences can help you. Cormac worked at Tinder when it went from 70 employees to over 300 and helped shape a culture of data-driven decision making and testing within the company. He has a lot of experience launching new products with testing and analytics in mind. He has an intense passion to understand the "why" questions in business, and utilizes data driven techniques to unearth the truth.
We primarily focus on SaaS companies who have some proof of market validation which typically means $500k+ in ARR. You still aren't at the "growth stage" yet - you still have plenty to figure out and need to build a highly scalable team. We will entertain seed stage investing from proven entrepreneurs. Sorry if you don't fit our criteria but there are only the two of us so we need to focus on companies where we can add real value.
If you have a technology company with both product and revenue, please drop us an email and let's talk.
