We rethink venture and provide entrepreneurs with an unfair advantage to accelerate success while helping enterprises digitally transform.
Why Rethink Venture: Capital is not enough
Capital is the cost of entry for an entrepreneur, but it isn’t a magic solution.
Building technology companies to real market success is an exciting, but volatile process. Too often, entrepreneurs face limited reach to end customers and lack access to deep research capabilities and specialized talent. These are challenges that capital alone can’t solve. Team8’s model was built around the belief that we could improve the odds for entrepreneurs but also develop the right solutions for enterprises.
