What’s it like to work with the Underscore VC team?

You’ve likely heard it said before: “Your investor relationships will be longer than the average marriage.” A statement that truly only hints at the importance of choosing your investors wisely.

We take our role in your business and your life seriously. And as a multi-generational mix of seasoned investors, operators, and entrepreneurs, we’ve been in your shoes. That’s why we set out to build a venture firm that we ourselves would want to be in business with.

So, how has that manifested in our relationships with our founders? We’ll encourage you to ask them when the time is right, but here are a handful of words our founders have used to describe us: approachable, authentic, transparent, “clutch,” and even fun. We like to think that we emphasize the “fun” in “funding.”

We take our work seriously, but not ourselves. We operate with trust and respect. We bring our whole selves (and sometimes our children and fur-babies) to work, and we expect the same from you.

You’ll have access to the full Underscore VC team, not just the Partner that championed our investment in you. We’re a package deal. And as former founders and operators ourselves, we each have our individual talents and expertise that we encourage you to tap into.

Building a company is a roller-coaster of an experience. We commit to supporting you through the twists and turns, celebrating with you during the peaks, and answering (encouraging, even) your late-night phone calls when you’re in the valleys. Entrepreneurs humble us, and we’ll do everything in our power to remove the barriers that stand between you and your success.

Above all else, the Underscore team is made up of listeners and learners who are united in our belief that it’s all about you and your mission.
