We are product-first investors and are attracted to entrepreneurs who use their engineering vision to change markets, which you will see evidence of in our first eight investments. Most of our founders are repeat entrepreneurs with strong domain expertise. We believe we bring something different to the table, and as such, we've been fortunate to syndicate our initial investments with firms such as Lightspeed, Battery Ventures, Emergence, Accel and Greycroft, among many other high-quality firms. We're going to continue to invest in innovative software and security companies that have impressive intellectual property and management teams with the vision to execute.
