Meet The Team

Unreasonable resources.

Unprecedented outcomes.

^this will be in video format like top of page—not possible to visually represent in this consolidated form.

Primary's commitment to founders begins with how we invest: We take a low-volume, high-conviction approach—because we devote unreasonable resources toward building unfair advantages.

The differentiator, unheard of in seed VC, is Primary Impact: Outnumbering investors 2:1, this team led by C-suite execs makes hires, signs customers, and secures next rounds to supercharge the growth of New York City’s most successful startups.

Here, you'll find a few examples of the work our team does alongside founders and their teams.


A partner on your financial big picture.

Pan Chaudhury tapped Primary to calibrate plans for a people-intensive business scaling rapidly. The future-focused model and analysis—which Pan would have had to hire full-time staff to create otherwise—provided a detailed perspective on the long term gross margin potential for the business that was key for downstream investors.

"Early stage VCs don't typically encourage extended use of dedicated resources. At first I didn't understand how much I could tap the Impact team's very seasoned operators, but once I did, Primary built our financial model, meaningfully extending runway and clarifying strategy."

- Pan Chaudhury, Founder and CEO of Perry Health

Supercharge profitability

Leap ahead with sales leadership.

Stefan Bauer excelled at every challenge he'd ever taken on, but he had never built a sales team before. With Primary's frameworks for pipeline coverage, qualification targets, and sales targeting, he built a high performing sales organization, signed deals with top school districts, and raised Series A funding from a16z and Sir Richard Branson.


“By working with Primary Impact, we were able to build an incredible sales organization from the ground up. With a playbook that saw around corners, coaching that showed what great looks like, and expert insights most seed-stage teams simply don't have access to, we significantly accelerated our growth and path to Series A."

- Stefan Bauer, Cofounder and CEO of Marker Learning


"Building this team ourselves would have taken us at least twice as long and cost us millions in missed pipeline. The difference with Primary as a whole is they really want to get shit done—and they actually do what every firm claims to."

- Richard Harris, Founder and CEO of Black Crow
