three pillars of focal

we pride ourselves in being people you can rely on, always hold ourselves accountable to our own highest standards and don’t take ourselves too seriously.
we're there for the individuals we back, never stop learning and approach both our work and our relationships with a long term mindset.
we cut our own path, applaud diversity and don't subscribe blindly to how our industry operates. Like the founders we back, we continuously try, fail, learn, innovate, and grow.

you also become part of our tight-knit founder community and get to learn from 100+ of today's best GTM operators in The GTM Circle
