We’re founders and builders here to help others create and scale transformative companies. We built the team that we wish we had in our corner when we founded our first companies.

Venture is an antiquated industry, so we’re using software to scale the un-scaleable parts of our business in order to better help our founders and make best use of our all-star team’s time.

Our partners — leveled up through software — are a hive mind to serve founders, who in turn help us see the future.

We've helped more founders build startups at the earliest possible stage than most anyone you'll meet, and that means we can help startups avoid the 1,000 landmines that can cause certain failure. A lot of great investors, advisors, founders, and friends have helped us along the way.

We focus on investing in high-potential software startups at seed stage and earlier, with small teams that include great engineers, designers and product founders. Many companies come to us when they are just two or four people, and we help them get from there to their Series A or B rounds and beyond.

Working at Initialized Capital

Our team works together very closely on everything we do – from investing to advising portfolio companies to developing new program ideas. Many of us have different backgrounds, communication preferences, and work styles. Our processes are built to encourage each person to express their unique perspective and for the group to drive to a decision (but not necessarily to consensus).

Diversity and Inclusion

We are proud that our investment team is 50 percent women and we are always actively looking for founders who are underrepresented or have atypical backgrounds. We want to support a vision of entrepreneurship that is inclusive of people from all walks of life. We will never say that we are “lowering the bar” or that it is a “pipeline problem.” We recognize that all actors in society have to take proactive effort to make sure they are reaching out to groups that have been historically underrepresented within the technology industry

Our most important value is collaboration – each person needs to have empathy and active listening skills so that we can understand each others’ points of view. We will not always agree but we want to understand the opinion of each team member because each person is bringing unique experience or knowledge to the conversation.
