Restarting Startups

The Last90 provides venture capital, and works side-by-side with the founders as operational co-founders to get you back on track.  We invest in startups that are redefining the future of work.

The Founders' spark is the first 10%

As former founders we appreciate the hustle, domain experience, coding chops and cultural relevance founders make when they go from a weekly paycheck to betting on themselves. That is the magic of the first 10%. The last 90% is all about the execution.

We named our fund The Last90 because we bring venture capital, a Private Equity model and the early-stage heavy-lifting experience needed to turn the Founder’s passion and idea into a revenue generating business.

 

Why Do High Potential Startups Stall?

1
Running Low On Cash

The hockey stick forecast didn’t come true and that impacted your runway.

2
First-Time Founders

Decision-making process due to inexperience of running a company. 

3
NEGLIGIBLE PRODUCT MARKET FIT

Solving interesting problems vs critical business needs.

4
Pivot That Missed

Not pivoting quickly enough along with the cash burn to support the team.

We Work With Founders To Pull Out Of The Stall

The Last90 enables Founders to continue to build on their vision with the guidance, financial stability and equity upside. The Last90 provides venture capital, joins the board and works side-by-side with the founders as operational co-founders.

We formulate a M&A or Private Equity “exit ready” strategy and timeline. The next step is the deployment of our venture capital and full-time technical, engineering, product, marketing and sales teams to accelerate execution to the next milestone.
