MORE THAN MONEY.

 

 
Coworking standing desk

Cahoots actively invests in talented founder teams.

We understand what it’s like to start out with just an idea and a clear desk.

When it comes to supporting startups, we are all in — the capital for our startup investments is supplied by the same partners who have contributed to build the Cahoots tech hub. You can learn more about Cahoots here.

 
 
 

What kind of investor is Cahoots?

Coworking startup with standing desks
 
 

We are a friendly group of repeat entrepreneurs who enjoy supporting people who dream big. Our goal is to help exciting teams with big ideas make things happen. We endeavor to bring more than money to our investment relationships by providing continuous support based on our experience and connections throughout the entire life of your company.

 
 
  • We only invest on founder-friendly terms.

  • We tend to prefer early stage companies.

  • We want to see some clear initial traction in the market.

  • We think the economic value of an idea is zero, unless it’s coupled with a capable team who will pursue it relentlessly.

  • We specialize in software — both consumer and B2B.

  • We like ideas that, if successful, could disrupt entire markets.

  • We focus on solving problems for people over pursuing cool technology.

  • We advise hiring when a larger team accelerates growth, not when investment dollars are available.
