visionary founders

We invest in founders at the earliest stages who are working on ideas that create a better future for us all.

We focus on founders who demonstrate grit, deep domain expertise, and lead through example.

We build supportive relationships early, track performance, and invest at inflection points. We focus on pre-seed and seed stage FinTech and PropTech, but we will also invest opportunistically in other sectors.

You can learn more about how we’ve invested and supported our founders by reviewing the deck for SUM Fund I.

We build relationships early with founders and then provide capital, resources and support to accelerate growth.


We work with venture funds, family offices, angel groups, and service providers to identify and co-invest in early-stage opportunities.

Track Record

Over the past 3 years we’ve been the first investor in numerous successful startups including Brius, UNest, Champions Round, Autotmotus, DressX, and Purlin. We’ve served as Board Members or C-Level executives at Marqeta, Acorns, UNest and Madison Marquette. We are building on the success of our inaugural fund launched in 2022.
