ALL VC say they add value to founders. We transform them.
Diverse Founders & Companies + World Class Executive Coaching + Investment
At Dive In, we help world-class diverse founders and companies outcompete by using a rigorous multi-year coaching methodology with a proven track record for success.
The future these founders and companies represent is one in which we are inspired to live, so we are doing everything we can to stack the decks in their favor. Increased funding is critical, but even with more capital, venture is an industry predicated upon 1 in 20 businesses succeeding. This is wildly inefficient. As successful operators who have coached over 800 companies, we believe we can significantly improve these odds.

It’s not about changing who you are. It’s about seeing yourself clearly and designing around yourself effectively to achieve goals faster.
Data & Analysis
Sharpen your picture of how your behaviors drive or hinder your team’s performance with evidence. Then do something about it.
Most founders are not good managers and do not know what good management looks like. See your management skills or gaps clearly, then build a strong management layer that learns together.
We reserve significant capital to back the companies we believe will scale after at least a year of coaching them.
