We just wanted to write you a note saying we really should invest in something together this year.
In looking at the new Co-Investors data and tool in PitchBook, we realized that we do pretty well when we pair up and invest alongside each other—especially over these last five years. Here is a look at what we have done together since January 2010:

So what better way than investing together? Clearly, with our two powers combined (network, expertise, etc.), we can help companies do some impressive things. We have a number of promising early stage companies that will likely be fundraising soon (Kahuna, Shopular, Relcy).
What do you say?
