Publicly Announced Investments

FOUNDER FOCUSED

We are gamers—which means we love to be on the winning team with our esports and B2B investments. If you’re a founder who is driven to excel, have demonstrated excellence in your past experience, and are passionate about bringing invention to a growing market, show us your competitive edge.

GEOGRAPHICALLY AGNOSTIC

We’re based in Dallas, but we’re geographically agnostic. We primarily invest in capital-inefficient markets, which can mean geographies or industries where seed stage capital is lacking. We also prefer to invest in businesses where we feel we add significant value alongside other investors.

READY TO INVEST

Our investments range from $100,000 to $1MM, depending on the stage of your business and what role we will play. The earlier we can invest, the better: We prefer to make an initial investment before Series-A.
