Like the original venture firms of the 70’s and 80’s, we are not sector focused. Our founding investment thesis is that the Intermountain West (the fastest growing region in the country) will produce a disproportionate amount of highly successful companies over the next couple of decades. Our singular focus is providing the early rounds of investment in the most promising high-growth companies in the region.
This is all we do. We don’t invest all over the country or in sectors that go in and out of favor. Our unique focus on the region sets us apart from other venture capital firms employing the latest strategy du jour. Because we spend all our time and energy here, we’re better able to help you gather the resources you need, we know “where the bones are buried.” Investing in this region is all we’ve done since we started the firm and we’ll still be doing it decades from now.
We understand the challenges of start-ups in smaller towns — whether it’s lack of access to venture capital or geographic distance and isolation from valuable professional resources. We also understand why you live and work here. For the same reasons we do. Call it a pioneering spirit and a desire for an unparalleled quality of life. That’s one of the reasons we’ve brought venture capital to the region — so entrepreneurs can continue building outstanding companies in a geography that offers a low cost of doing business, considerable intellectual capital and tremendous employee loyalty.
