Note from Operator.VC

We're not VCs, we're operators who write checks. We've built software used by tens of millions of users. We've attracted hundreds of thousands of prospects without advertising. We've rung the bell at the NYSE to celebrate an IPO. Our operational experience includes key roles at HubSpot, CarGurus, Facebook, Cybereason, Jana, SolidWorks, and some companies where things didn't work out too. We've been there, done that, and that's why entrepreneurs love working with us and seek us out as investors and advisors.


We plan on syndicating our deal whenever the founders are open to it.
