indicators of purposefulness

Scalability
Low-scalability ventures often require maximum founder effort and result in minimal expansion. That’s why we think scalability is a key metric to evaluate the lasting durability of a company.

High Margins + Revenue
Without meaningful revenue, a company is limited in its impact—and, well, lifetime. High margins and revenue open the door for a company to pursue creative ideas, make strategic investments, broaden its vision of impact, and ultimately become what it chooses.

Culture
When startups can’t compete with the capital, technology, or resources of bigger companies, how can they win? What is their currency for attracting great talent and doing great things? We believe the answer often lies in the intangibles: founders’ vision, a well-defined challenge, mentorship, and team cohesion. We look for founders who create healthy cultures with employee buy-in and empowerment as core values.
