How We Do It

we leverage our experience, network, back office infrastructure, creative, design and technology teams to develop go-to-market strategies that accelerate customer acquisition, drive revenue and optimize gross margins.



One of the keys to consumer engagement is killer design. We help entrepreneurs build functional solutions that drive exceptional user experience with optimum utility.



Companies need strategies for scalable, cost-effective customer acquisition. we specialize in distribution platforms for mobile, social media and ecommerce leveraging Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Apple, Android and others.



Great ideas without a solid plan for sustainable revenue growth die fast. We help companies find ways to monetize their content and products through sales strategies, channel partnerships and distribution.

How Much We Invest

Our investments range from $25,000 to $1,000,000 depending on market opportunity and initial traction. We often co-invest with other angels and venture groups.

How It Works

We’re looking for tech businesses with early traction run by great people. If we like the model, we invite the entrepreneur to sunny San Diego to pitch it. If we like the person and the idea — we say “yes”.
