Consulting and Advisory Services
During the sourcing stage, we partner with various incubators to observe growing talent. We also host and attend startup events, competitions and policy-driven initiatives to identify the most viable ventures. Impact network referrals also play an important role in our sourcing process.
The selection stage includes pro-bono mentoring and advising for eligible companies. Mentorship and observation is sustained for 6-12 months prior to investment event. During this engagement period, we validate the cultural fit of the company and build trusted relationships with the leadership team.
