What we do Differently

Impact to us means social and financial. Our OKRs are Speed to Impact and Investor ROI. We focus on the inevitable - paradigm shifts. We surround big problems with experts, then validate, launch and blitzscale solutions by investing our team and capital.

Outcomes Northstar

Everything we do is focused on the desired outcome. Speed to Impact and Investor ROI are our OKRs. To achieve these OKRs we apply a SaaS lens to investing knowing that the most immediately impactful and scalable solutions are those that provide value from user 1 to user N.

PSF Validation

We never guess. Our 3 step process validates market timing for paradigm shifts and our ability to force that timing. (1st) we filter solutions via our councils, (2nd) we validate solutions by mirroring live product customer acquisition programs, (3rd) we execute (now), pause (later), kill (never).

Operational Investing

We invest people (and capital) on a performance basis. We invest our team of serial operators with diverse backgrounds and networks to fill gaps in product, marketing, sales, BI, customer success, and engineering. We invest our experts, network and capital to drive escape velocity growth.

Our why

A message from our founder and CEO

Over 20 years ago, I almost lost my mother due to a missed diagnosis of colon cancer. In the last 5 years, my sister found a sign of breast cancer missed just weeks prior in an exam and I went through a year of specialist appointments with no resolution. One of my cofounders and partners had her entire department closed down when the department head was found guilty of sexual harassment and let go - with a payout and confidentiality agreement that let him continue his toxic behavior elsewhere.

I started working on solving the healthcare problem in 2017 and quickly realized that the system was beyond broken and slow, with no aligned interests between insurance carriers, companies and healthcare systems. I started digging into sexual harassment in the workplace in 2018 and found that companies are not interested in a true objective of stopping this toxic behavior, but rather just quietly getting rid of the bad actors in their company.

I grew tired of watching us get bullied into bad healthcare, toxic work environments, a planet on the verge of environmental collapse - as well as other issues. I decided it was time to build a platform that gave us—the people—the small business owner—the tools we needed to impact change in the workplace, in the environment, and more.

Break the Wheel was formed with one purpose, to ensure what is in the best interest of the people succeeds. We source, vet and accelerate mission-driven unicorns - for profit companies that can positively impact 1 billion lives in areas from healthcare to climate, and education to human rights.
