Founders’ Letter



Hard to believe we are about a quarter short of two years of announcing AC INC. It’s been busy! I certainly feel AC INC is working well, and as intended. At the time, I wrote that “AC INC is about businesses prospering through strong leaders and independence.” The new structure has helped entrepreneurs build and run companies with the autonomy and speed they need.


Araksi and I are working well together on the overall AC direction and providing guidance to the companies. David is doing great as AC INC CEO. It’s certainly a big job and we are very lucky to have him. He’ll probably write this letter again in the future as he has in the past, so I won’t speak too much for him on the AC  INC related topics in this one. But, I’m excited about how he is leading the company with a focus on startup finance and swap. We took a big step in that direction with the M&A section.

We’ve had a number of significant things happen on the AC INC side since I last wrote. A number of our projects became companies, with more autonomy and dedicated leadership.

So in conclusion, Araksi and I are having a good time looking for new opportunities and managing and scaling our existing efforts. I still see amazing opportunities that just aren’t quite fully developed yet—and helping making them real is what I get excited about.
