Founders are the most important variable in our investment decisions, specifically their unique advantage in a given market.
We strive to be the best in the world at just one thing (seed investing), rather than merely 'good' across the board. We've mastered the Repeatable Playbook of "Seed to A".
In race, gender, culture, skillset, and viewpoint. Not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it's proven to drive outsized returns.
Our deep roots in real estate give our firm and many of our portfolio companies a leg up. We leverage physical assets, a millennial tenant base and a deep network to move the needle.
Good or bad, we tell it like it is, to our founders, LPs, co-investors, and each other. We expect it in return.
Consensus is a path to mediocrity, boldness leads to the outliers that drive portfolio returns. We 'lead' deals, literally and figuratively.
While we have a basic framework of guidelines, our ultimate goal is to partner with exceptional teams possessing powerful visions to transform industries.
We feel very fortunate to have been able to work with Corigin since our Seed round. Corigin is uniquely positioned, given its intersection between real estate and tech, to provide unparalleled industry credibility and support to us.
We couldn't ask for a better lead investor and board member than Corigin. They provide sage strategic advice and put their considerable resources toward helping with our marketing, partnerships, recruiting, and deal flow. Many thanks to Ryan, David, Jason, Claire, and the rest of the team.
The team was tremendously valuable through the fundraising process. Not just in making two of the key intros but also in pointed guidance and criticism around our fundraising pitch. We would not have gotten this far without them. If this is any measure of the value they are adding to portfolio companies in general then Corigin's got a great team :)
Corigin has been an essential part of refining the Latch user experience and shaping how the building of the future will work.
David and his colleagues at Corigin have been exceptionally helpful over the past year. They have been a source of excellent advice and a trusted sounding board for difficult decisions. During the round, David introduced us to a bevy of interested investors and post-funding, he has been instrumental in helping us build out our management team and establish best practices for company.
The term "value-add" gets thrown around a lot when you are fundraising and when we were first talking to Corigin we thought, "they're a real-estate company, how much could they really help." But over the past year, I have been completely blown away by how willing and involved Corigin has been. From connections into top prospects to the nitty gritty of financial modeling David and his team have not only shown a willingness to help but have taken initiative to actively and tangibly support us.
