At Early, we help you win through design, growth, and capital. We write small checks; often after helping founders hands-on.
Our thesis is simple:
Loom came from an observation of people using QuickTime and YouTube to make and share quick videos. Airbnb was “Couchsurfing .com with payments.” Before OnlyFans, nsfw creators used Snapchat and Venmo. Twitch came from observing Justin tv streams. Slack started as a quirky internal tool.
By observing a high-friction niche behavior, we can build a category-defining company by reducing friction.
We work with forces of nature that bend the world to their will.
I first saw this at Yik Yak and, later, at Loom. Vinay was so intense it made most people uncomfortable. Joe and Shahed would reply to messages through the wee hours of the morning. All were great at prioritizing, driving results, and putting the ball through the damn hoop. This is the DNA of a great founder.
If that resonates, we’d love to talk.
We’re Early; and we’re here to help you win.
