Co-Founder and Managing Partner
Will Bermender Equity Partners / New York, NY
WBE invests in post-seed companies that have achieved product-market fit, but have not yet proven sufficient market scalability to raise a major VC round. We invest in companies that have an operational plan to hit big milestones within a 12-month period, and we work closely with the companies in our portfolio to develop this early traction into large, sustainable businesses.
