At Baleen, we believe that customer value and the customer's experience is the core underlying driver to business.  We invest in companies with amazing products that their customers love, high growth prospects, and superior unit economics, leading to high and profitable growth over time.  We're looking to invest in and support the current and next generation of great companies.

We are long-term investors, with the capability for flexible structuring and speedy execution, as long as there is evidence of customer excellence.  Previous investments have taken the form of venture capital, private investments, and debt, as well as public equity. 

Current and historic investments include Deako, Bulk MRO, Snappr, Agentology, and Darmiyan on the private side, and public companies such as Google, Facebook, Tesla, Twilio, and Purple.

We're looking for people and companies that make things that their customers love.
