• Code of Conduct

    Founder Empathy

    Startups are hard, and fundraising is rough. I have been in your shoes as a former founder. Therefore, I am transparent about my thinking, process, conflicts of interest, competitors in our portfolio, or the likelihood of an investment. I will not string you along.

    Mutual Respect

    I respect your time by maximizing remote meetings, being on time and letting you know in advance about delays or rescheduling. I read and understand all materials that you send me at least one day before. I will focus on you (and not my phone or email) during our meetings.


    I educate before I negotiate. I am frank about the market range for investment terms. I seek a fair equity stake in your business that incentivizes the best spread of startup outcomes. If we have partnered, I will act in the best interests of the company, respond promptly at all times and be personally there for you rain or shine.
