We Believe

Great entrepreneurs can make the largest impact on the world.

OUR MODEL

Phase 1:

We find world-class talent.

We partner with proven performers who are ready to embark on a 5-10 year journey with us to build a large business. Having an idea for a company is not a prerequisite.

PHASE 2:

We develop ambitious ideas.

Future founders join our team as Entrepreneurs in Residence (EIRs) to work hands-on with portfolio companies and intensively research strategies for their own ventures.

PHASE 3:

We cofound companies.

When ready, EIRs become CEOs & cofounders of their own companies with funding, a significant ownership stake, salary, and autonomy.

PHASE 4:

We focus on early profitability.

Mechanism’s domain experts work hands-on with CEOs to reach profitability and build infrastructure across growth, product, finance, legal, etc.

PHASE 5:

We enable hypergrowth.

Once profitable, we work with CEOs to make market size their only constraint as we provide resources to support scale, align incentives, and leverage the mechanisms that drive growth.
