What We Do

We specialize in
Net Revenue Retention (NRR)

We've been there, done that and know what it takes to improve NRR.


We provide CS experts with opportunities to invest in new technologies that deliver solutions to improve Net Revenue Retention. We make it easy to invest via our syndicate.  

Pay It Forward

We can only invest on behalf of accredited investors so we match our experts with the opportunity to educate the CS leaders of tomorrow on equity and fundraising, promoting DE&I in tech.

2022 was a reality check for the tech community. Growth at all costs is ineffective and Net Revenue Retention (NRR) has secured its place as the north star metric for growing companies. The people most in line to drive NRR are CS leaders and we need to maximize the tech to help deliver this.

Successful companies are 
built by successful customer teams improving NRR

Here's some evidence to back us up 😇


NRR compounds over time. Each marginal 20% increase in NRR doubles company ARR in 5 years.


Valuation metrics of a  company with high retention rates can be twice as much as a company with average rates.


~70% of public cloud companies include NRR  in their SEC filings.


Recent filings show companies in the top half of NRR performance have an average EV / Revenue multiple of ~21x, while those in the bottom half show only ~10x.
