FOCUS ENABLES HANDS-ON COMMITMENT AND PARTNERSHIP.

We're focused by design, funding only a small number of companies a year. We work with you as you grow, even when times get tough. If you need it, we're big enough to fund you all the way through your company's lifecycle.

03

THERE IS NO PLAYBOOK. ONLY HARD WORK AND FAST LEARNING.

Finding go-to-market fit. Making early hires and building a successful team. These are the hardest things you’ll do in the early stages. We will help you learn the specific skills you need to get there and beyond.

Developing Authentic Leaders

We work to build authentic leaders who display personal humility, indomitable will and incredible ambition for their purpose, not themselves.

1:1 Coaching Sprints

We work with you at the speed you need to fill gaps in knowledge and experience and become a well-rounded founder.

Learning Labs

Subject-matter experts focused on critical topics leaders and teams need most share their knowledge and advice.

04

VENTURE IS A TEAM SPORT.

Nearly everyone at Costanoa is a former operator, most of us with a product background. We’ve worked at storied companies - or founded and sold them ourselves. Companies like Amazon, Pinterest, Netscape, Microsoft, Zuora, Databricks, and Merced Systems among many others.
