We started Cue Ball because we believe in the power of people and ideas, but feel that the structures for capitalizing them are dated. They’re too short-term, too insular and more financial-centric than human-centric. As entrepreneurs, we wanted another choice – one more purposeful, people-first, and truly patient.

We seek entrepreneurial passion meeting human perspective. Purpose and profit are not natural enemies, but allies to fuel each other. Our progressive and patient investment model endorses diverse entrepreneurs taking on category-defining and culturally-shifting ideas. Anchored by evergreen capital, we can take the long view. Microwave capitalism just isn’t us.

Venture growth is best when it turns to durable growth.We love this goal. Eleanor Roosevelt said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”

Let’s make big change happen together.


  • Cherish integrity above all else

A cue ball is both classic and modern, bold and understated.
A cue ball serves as a momentum driver and catalyst to propel things forward.
A cue ball leads and breaks the pack.
You can’t really start your game without a cue ball.
