"Hungry dogs run faster."
We look to partner with mission-driven founders with intense founder-problem-fit - that is, high alignment between a founder's core skill set against the critical needs of their endeavor. From our experience, these are the founders that execute with desperate urgency and are guided by extreme competency.
Innovation can manifest in many forms; it can emerge from slow burns or rapid breakthroughs. After investing in over 300 startups collectively, we have seen too many venture capital investors getting stuck in stale and rigid thinking, defaulting to pattern-matching, and ultimately risk-protecting themselves away from some of the most innovative startups around.
We built Fourth Realm to support and capitalize on these opportunities
