When we began in 2013, we were concerned that investor returns might be at odds with public benefits. Today, our portfolio offers some of the best examples of companies that are on track to deliver outsized venture capital returns and outsized public benefits.



We work with over 800 people representing cities, companies, and investors interested in helping startups that help cities. They help us to evaluate investment opportunities and engage with our founders to solve specific issues from fundraising to customer acquisition.



If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
