Our mission is to build a community.
A community of Resolute Founders who: share a certain entrepreneurial spirit and energy; are driven by a need to work on things that matter; are unafraid to dream big; are founders whom we think have a better chance than most to actually achieve those dreams; and who believe being connected to a group of like-minded founders will help them succeed.
What We Do
We have a well developed view of who we are and who we aren’t, and a clear and consistent style of working with founders.
We make investment decisions quickly. We invest in people as opposed to markets, and typically discern whether you are a “Resolute Founder” within a couple weeks of meeting.
We prefer developing real human relationships with our founders as opposed to operating in a Board/Management dynamic. We don’t like board meetings, or any meetings for that matter. Our goal is to earn a founder’s trust as an advisor and confidante, so you feel we are on your team. We want to be the call you make when you have that “oh shit moment” in the middle of the night and don’t want to be all alone with that problem.
We will work with you closely on particular aspects of the journey from seed to series A: developing milestones and thinking through organizational, strategic and business model questions. And, in particular, preparing for and closing a successful venture round.
But we also have a clear view on when not to “help.” We will leave you alone to build and test when that is the phase you are in.
Because we know we are not the single best resource for many of the questions and challenges you face, we will connect you with other founders who are. With our emphasis on building connective tissue amongst Resolute Founders, it tends to be a group that wants to help.
Who we are
Resolute Ventures is a lead seed and“pre-seed” investor focused on backing and connecting a community of Founders who share an entrepreneurial spirit and energy. As a community, we are driven by a need to work on things that matter, and to both give and receive help along the way and connecting a community of Founders who share an entrepreneurial spirit and energy.
