Who We Are

Founded in 2000, AIC group of companies provides capital and support for early stage companies. We add value far beyond capital by partnering with great teams to pursue innovative ideas in areas where we have deep experience and strong networks.

The companies we founded as entrepreneurs were bootstrapped to significant scale and profitability. We did not raise venture capital. We maxed out our credit cards (and ruined our personal credit ratings in the process!). While every startup’s requirements are different, we believe the companies we invest into should raise the bare minimum capital needed to grow their business. This preserves maximum ownership for the entrepreneur and encourages financial discipline.
