Our Team


Our team includes our 2 founders — each bringing over 20 years of experience founding and managing technology startups — and a group of talented professionals with experience in business management, design and marketing, UI development and software engineering.

Our team helped facilitate building desktop software, embedded systems, client-server, distributed network computing, internet, and software as a service. We’ve seen everything: shrink-wrap licenses, enterprise-wide “big deals”, subscription pricing direct sales, and highly-leveraged channel strategies that download driven inside sales, and much more. And today, we’re investors in pioneering companies in cloud computing.

In other words, software is all we do.  We bring tremendous value to highly talented people who strive to develop great software companies.

We hope this website helps you get to know us, but please feel free to contact any of us directly.
