We believe that part of the role of venture investors in a community is to support and engage with a region’s community of entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship is a high calling, and entrepreneurs must be supported by the community around them as they seek to solve big problems and provide innovative solutions. We are proud that our strongest source of referrals for investment opportunities is the entrepreneurs that we back, and the ones that we meet along the way. Venture capital is an industry where “we all leave footprints in the sand.”
