Skrach is an early stage-focused firm that provides strategic advisory and inceptive capital to entrepreneurs that are working on breakthrough digital solutions.


We are a partnership of startup advisors and investors that focus on early stage technology firms and advise them on strategy and execution.

We focus on the build phase.

  • We typically get involved when the team has gone from concept to implementation and is building their MVP (i.e., we don’t invest when the founders are still in the concept phase)
  • If we invest, we aim to to be “first money in,” meaning that the companies have typically only raised founder money and/or a friends and family round (i.e., no professional investors)
  • If a company has issued preferred shares, is raising a seed round, or is going/has gone through an incubator/accelerator, it is probably too late for us to participate

We are service providers.

  • In the investment industry, investors have always been viewed as the customers
  • Our view is that money is a commodity and we are service providers to entrepreneurs
  • Our customers are the entrepreneurs and the companies they build

We select based on 4 criteria:

  1. Builders: We look for founders that are capable of building their own product
  2. New markets: We like opportunities where no one is servicing the latent need
  3. Revenue: We like companies where customers pay for the product
  4. Software: We like products where the marginal cost of production is zero
