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.

Our values


Self-integrity is about doing the right thing even when no one is watching, but it’s also about self-awareness and consistency to do what you say, say what you think, and think what you feel – because how you feel is who you are.

Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.

— C. S. Lewis


Believe more than you can, so that you can more than you believe. We believe that.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.

— Lao Tzu


Have conviction with a clear point of view while humbly embracing opposing perspectives. Understanding is being able to argue both sides. 

Dissents speak to a future age. It’s not simply to say, ‘My colleagues are wrong and I would do it this way.



Commit to be each other’s success by striving to be best supporting actors always listening, learning, and adding value.

The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.

— Pablo Picasso


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.
