Investment Rationale:

When 645 first met the founders in 2014, we were blown away by the drive and conviction of the team. Despite their relatively young age, they had identified an acute problem in a massive market and were positioned well to go after it. They were backed by premier early investors and were exceptional at evangelizing the vision that they saw before them. Our assessment is even more true today than it was in 2014 and we feel exceptionally fortunate to be on this journey with them.
