We initially commit up to $500,000 per investment and are backed by over $100 million to fuel portfolio company growth. Our companies benefit from more than just funding. We take a unique, hands-on approach to each team we invest in, spending 6 to 12 months with them to discover product-market fit and guiding them to a successful Series A round. We provide our founders with office space, access to our full-time staff of functional experts (growth hackers, designers, product folks, and more), hands-on engagement from partners, and a fully functional hardware lab. Past Tandem investments include Tile, Cuff, and Bash Gaming.
