Building best-in-class back office products so companies can focus on what they do best.

We partner with future founders to build great companies.

We're a venture studio with two beliefs: Companies that unbundle their cost centers will spend less and grow more because they'll focus on their unique products. And teams dedicated to excellent service provide better careers than a cost center essential and underfunded in most companies.

Factories used to generate their own power and companies once ran their own payroll. But if you're a brewery, generating your own electricity doesn't make your beer taste better. Today that's true for HR, recruiting, finance, and more. Our companies increase quality while lowering costs and risks.
