Hi, this is Jonathan Swanson and Jake Zeller.
We believe the world needs more builders. That’s why we’re operators—not venture capitalists.
Over the last decade, we’ve scaled teams to 1,000+ and raised over $700M from VCs.
We’re angels in Mercury, Scale AI, Talkdesk and 100+ more.
We help with the hard things: hiring/firing, co-founder disputes, fundraising, board issues and scaling.
