Note from Paul

I was an early partner at 500 Startups and, after leaving the firm to move back to the DC Metro area, raised a separate $50M fund for slightly later stage investments. Scroll down to see a subset of the deals I've selected and many of the successful exits within those selections.

I'm driving across North America to visit the places that startups actually start (and grow) their businesses. In 2016, drove over 26,000 miles, visited 42 cities across North America, shook hands with 20,000 entrepreneurs, sat down with 1,200 early stage startups and invested in the best of them.

I'm ramping that up for 2017: more stops, more events and more investors coming along with us. At each stop, I’ve created a week-long series of events for entrepreneurs and investors. Along the way, I’ll mentor thousands of entrepreneurs, visit incubators and coworking spaces, hold investor dinners and dive into the local (tech) culture.

More importantly, I'll be meeting with many founders and companies before they ever schedule a VC meeting in San Francisco, Chicago or NYC. I will invest roughly $25K per deal and I'll never be more than 10% of the overall fundraising round at the early stage.

I invest in traction rather than ideas, I prefer to participate in early rounds rather than "lead" them and I'm specifically looking for high-growth technology companies before they get on the radar of the typical VCs that are writing the larger seed/A checks.

Policies:

* You can opt out of any particular deal without penalty

* Backers who have pre-funded their accounts will get priority in ultra-competitive deals.

* Be comfortable with risk and prepared to lose your entire investment without complaint
