We believe big ideas should have the opportunity to change the world.
As the largest venture capital firm focused on Texas, our mission is to help local entrepreneurs build technology-centric companies that change the way the world works, lives, and heals. Our team includes a mix of life-long entrepreneurs, operators, and investors — which we believe brings the right balance of perspectives and breadth of experience to our portfolio companies.
We are structured to focus on what matters.
Since our firm’s inception, we have been fortunate to be solely backed by a multi-billion dollar family — which has also been of great benefit to our entrepreneurs: without the distraction of constant fundraising, our entire team can dedicate more time and resources to helping companies succeed. With this unique structure, we are unencumbered by many of the mandates and timing constraints faced by traditional venture capital firms — better aligning us with the needs of founders and their companies. As a result, we have been able to back 40+ entrepreneurs with the patient capital and true resources required to build companies that truly make big (Texas-sized!) impacts.
