Why Unusual?

I was inspired by the team’s commitment to rethink venture, in order to better serve early stage founders. I couldn’t help but jump at the opportunity to work with visionary founders and exceptional talent at a firm that has a clearly-defined mission to deliver unique value to its portfolio and socially conscious LPs.
