An open letter to you, the entrepreneur:
We started Underscore by listening, on a mission to find a better way to empower you to build an enduring company and support your full potential as an entrepreneur.
Hundreds of entrepreneurs, who have created thousands of jobs and billions of dollars of value, shared with us their conviction that building substantive businesses takes more than capital. It takes a community.
Our response was to create a “Core” — a curated community of founders, entrepreneurs, and operators, invested in your success as our partners and motivated even beyond the opportunity, to give back. These are people who have walked in your shoes and are driven by the same entrepreneurial purpose as you.
We’ve brought the Core community together around an initial $85 million Seed-to-A venture fund backed by an outstanding group of Limited Partners, including some of the best children’s hospitals in the world, leading academic institutions, and global foundations dedicated to serving our planet.
Our focus is on Cloud Intelligence opportunities, but we are foremost investing in bold, brave entrepreneurs who dare to change our world for the better.
Our first investment has shown the power of the Core community as they came together to support David Hurley, the founder of Mautic.
We are privileged to have the opportunity to invest in great entrepreneurs like David and would be humbled by the possibility to support you.
The Underscore team,
John, Michael, Richard, Rob, Cory
