I am involved with a handful of companies. I focus on growth companies that are $5-20 million in revenue.
Here is the criteria I use for getting involved as a partner in a business:
1. Entrepreneur-led and customer funded (no outside funding)
2. At least $400k/month in revenue, highly profitable, and growing
3. Business and industry has potential to create a great enduring company
4. Partners share a strong vision together
5. Based within 30 miles of Boulder (or easily relocatable to)
I don’t “invest” in companies or get involved in startups. Just not what I’m good at.
