our story

Why we started a new firm? We started Defy so we could focus exclusively on investing in early stage opportunities. We are driven by a passion for working closely with entrepreneurs, especially through the transformative time after seed funding. We invest in people and in their conviction and talent for creating real change.

Why “Defy”? Being an entrepreneur means questioning everything. It means pushing back on all the smart, well-meaning people who tell you you’re wrong. Entrepreneurs that build something magical out of nothing embody what it means to defy.
