Behind the scenes



We are micro pessimists but macro optimists.

Think Rigorously

We care about being right and it often takes reasoning from first principles to get there.

Move with Urgency and Focus

Millions of businesses around the world (individuals, startups, and large enterprises) are open for business only if we are. When we mess up, miss a deadline, or slow down, it matters. We take that responsibility seriously.

We haven't won yet
