We look for well-rounded companies with strong management, product-market fit and a good sales strategy. Uncommon Denominator is an early stage venture capital firm. We invest in consumer brands that hit a psychological nerve, software companies that help other businesses make more money or spend less of it, and occasionally in frontier technologies. The common denominator across them is an uncommon skill-spike in one key area of the business. A few investments made by our team...
