We believe that the interests of investors and entrepreneurs can and should be aligned.
Startups today have access to tools and technologies that help keep them leaner and more efficient than ever before. Yet accessing the resources, connections, and guidance of top-tier venture capital still typically carries the requirement that founders accept large amounts of invested capital from their venture investors when building their companies. For many companies, that may mean taking more capital than they really need.
We’ve turned all that on its head. Aligned Partners offers our portfolio companies world-class venture capital expertise while enabling founders to start lean and stay lean all the way through their growth. We do this through a committed philosophy of alignment with our entrepreneurs.
Our team has invested in venture capital over a two-decade period. We've founded companies ourselves. We understand how to help founders achieve their dreams from start to exit.
We encourage our companies to stay as capital-efficient as possible throughout their lifecycle. Keeping capital requirements low lets startups keep their degrees of freedom high and allows founders and employees to retain a much higher ownership of their own company.
With nearly $80 million in capital across two funds, Aligned Partners serves our entrepreneurs with commitment, discipline, and focus.
