Landing


We build companies that push the world forward.

Atomic is a venture fund that founds companies. We prototype new ideas and assemble teams to scale the most promising ones into independent ventures.

Our goal isn’t to attract press attention or make a quick flip. It’s to create long-lasting businesses that improve workstreams, add value to users, and make life more joyful.

Our Approach


Our Approach


Our Approach

1. Be Ruthlessly Analytical

Our people have built multiple companies and understand the necessity to measure everything. Engrained in our culture is the discipline to understand the big picture in graphic detail and to constantly test our approaches with the metrics to back them up.

2. Tackle Large Markets

We don't limit ourselves to a single vertical or solution when building a company. If there's something we don't know, we learn it.  Our portfolio companies span the gamut in their focus but generally fall into a few categories - enterprise, consumer, and digital health.  The best part? We're just getting started.

3. Have a Point of View

We build new companies with an opinionated point of view on the future.  We know that some of the best ideas seem crazy at first glance and we aim to incorporate a willingness to entertain the crazy in our culture. We try new ideas with an optimistic and open mind for the possibilities of change they can bring to the world.

4. Focus on People

Atomic is a place to do your life's work. We look for people who aren't afraid of failure and are driven by possibility. Our people have a "why not?" attitude to new ideas and are focused on innovating through strategic execution.

How We Build


How We Build


How We Build

Small, diverse, and tight-knit teams

It has never been easier in the history of the world for small groups of talented people to meaningfully influence society and impact millions. Every step of our process is focused around enabling our people to make that impact. We form teams with diversity of perspective and skill in mind and aim to ensure they maintain ownership and control over the projects they work on.

Metric-obsessed product development

We aim to measure our progress on every level of the process of building a new company. How fast is our development team moving? How many users are using our product? Is the product actually making a difference in our users life in a quantifiable way? These are all questions we strive to answer throughout the process.
