How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

We make seed investments in seed-stage information security product companies, and operate a 14-week program designed to validate the concept, market strategy, and investor value proposition for 6-10 companies twice a year in the Spring and Fall.

My partners and I have been operators in information security companies and have worked as both founders and investors. Validation at every phase takes risk off of the table, whether it is for the founder, customers or investors.

We have an extensive network of mentors, advisors, customer prospects, and early stage investors.
