About the
Triangle Tweener Fund

A new approach to investing in early-stage Triangle based companies.

Our Story

In 2015, Triangle-based serial entrepreneur, Scot Wingo started the Triangle Tweener List focused on Triangle companies with over 10 people or $1m/yr in revenues.

After 7 years of data, we realized that this cohort of companies had very few closures, but also captured the Triangle's biggest and best exits.

In 2022, we launched the Triangle Tweener Fund to invest in Triangle Tweener companies using an index strategy.
