is our thing.
We invest early in industry-changing companies,
specifically in fintech, data and developer infrastructure, applied AI and security.
Our team’s vast B2B experience supports founders in these
(sometimes unloved) spaces with keen insight and sharp instinct.
You are never just a number with us. We invest in only a handful of great companies a year so we can allocate our time, experience, and capital generously. Very early companies are faced with a number of pivotal threshold moments and we are all-in with you and your team to do the hard work to get through them together. We invest in a diverse set of founders–twenty of our companies started or are focused on Latin America, Europe, Africa and Australia.
By balancing fast growth and fiscal responsibility, we can help your company survive and thrive in all kinds of market environments.
Right-time help from Day One.
Our BuilderOps team is purpose built for early-stage enterprise. Working closely with our investment team, we support all our portfolio companies with hands-on operational expertise in hiring, sales, marketing, and company building from Day One.
We are as invested in your company’s success as you are, from the very beginning all the way to the finish line.
