We don’t outsource our conviction or the work or pass you off post-investment.

That’s helped us redefine markets, serving as the driving force behind deploying $500M+ across luminary firms like CapitalG, TCV, Lead Edge, KKR Growth, and The Chernin Group.

what Founders say
Choosing Allan and Ansa Capital as our partners was one of the best decisions we've made. Allan's dedication and commitment are clear - he’s an extension of our team: from his monthly trips to D.C. for in-person working sessions, to spearheading recruiting processes for our highest priority searches, to leveraging the Revenue Council  to support our negotiations with key channel partners, to working closely with our VP of Finance on forecasting, KPI tracking, and reporting. Above all, Allan and Ansa are active, hands-on partners. They are deeply experienced and thesis-driven, enabling them to ask the highest-value questions and enable us to think beyond the immediate and develop strategies that will unlock AI Squared's full potential.

Founder & CEO, AI Squared
There are so many reasons why after receiving multiple offers for our Series A, we decided to work with Marco and the Ansa team. The two biggest areas we prioritized were that we wanted to work with a firm that was investing in us, the people, the culture, our mission, our purpose and not just some abstract company with some financial data on a spreadsheet. The next thing that really mattered to us was that we wanted to work with a firm that truly understood founders. Ansa’s a startup, too. One that’s led dozens of companies through IPO, so not only do they know what it takes to be massively successful, they also understand and can relate to a founder's role in that journey.

Marco is a phenomenal investor.  I can always count on his help. He has provided amazing support in shaping the strategy, in hiring the right people, in understanding the best sales, customer success, and biz dev organization. I’ve come to trust his advice deeply, and he is one of those investors who are desperately needed to build a successful company.

Marco sourced and led [an] investment into Coinbase. Since then, he’s emerged as a great partner to myself & the entire management team. From curated off-sites, to helping recruit key leaders and giving us tactical input on scaling our business, Marco’s become a high impact, trusted collaborator.
