The Portfolio

As early-stage investors, we don’t spend a lot of time trying to predict the future. We leave it to bold founders to envision the next generation of iconic software companies. That said, we don’t back companies or even ideas. We back people. People who are uniquely qualified and purposeful about solving impactful problems. That’s why it will always be about you. Just ask our founders.

The Underscore team is everything a founder could ask for in an investor. They truly put their founders first - from fundraising, to sales intros, to bringing the right advisors and resources around the table through their Core Community - the Underscore team has acted as an extension of our team.

Janvi Shah
Co-Founder & CEO, Hue

We depend so much on the Core Community for little and big things daily. Underscore has the absolute best network of operators among all the VCs I have worked with.

Palash Soni
Co-Founder & CEO, Goldcast

The Underscore model is unbeatable. I recommend them to everyone.

Rob Gonzalez
Co-Founder & CMO, Salsify

From providing strategic guidance to facilitating introductions, Underscore’s long-term partnership with Coda has been invaluable to us as we have grown. What’s more, they’re also some of our biggest fans, as both avid users and vocal supporters.

Shishir Mehrotra
Co-Founder & CEO, Coda

Unlike other VCs, Underscore has built its operating model on the knowledge that moonshots are only accomplished through a communal effort of shared responsibility.

Rahkeem Morris
Co-Founder & CEO, HourWork

Choosing a VC is one of the most important decisions a founder makes. Underscore knows what it means to build enduring companies through strategically partnering with the founder and management team alike. The entire team has been instrumental in helping us bring our vision to life.

Tanya Bakalov
Co-Founder & CEO, HelloTeam

Underscore was more than an investor - they were an extension of our team, actively working with our fast-growing company to refine our strategy and unlock the next level of customer growth.

Mark Gally
CEO, Zaius

“Two years in and Underscore continues to be the most helpful investor on our cap table. They are willing to jump in and help whenever I need them and will bring in other team members as needed.”
