Pay-it-forward. Don't expect payback. It all works out in the end. The principle can be put any number of ways. All that matters is that we do our best to help entrepreneurs.
We strive to add value in every interaction -- whether it's an email, phone call, work product, or lunch meeting. By adding value, we show our respect for an entrepreneur's most valuable asset: time.
There's a saying in Alaska: "it takes a village to raise a child." We believe the same is true for startups. In all our interactions with others, we strive to build community by building up others.
