The leadership behind Leap
Pet care founders are these amazing people who deeply care about making the world a better place for pets, and each of our founders brings a unique business expertise to a wonderful industry.
As founders solve for problems they experience with their own dogs and cats, I’m amazed and impressed at the variety of unique products and services they invent.
The level of enthusiasm each day the pet founders bring and level of passion they have to make a difference in pet and human lives is what excites me.
The fact that we have not lost any companies in our five years of existence highlights not only our great decision-making process, but also the nimble and unrelenting nature of our founders!
I’m continually inspired by LEAP companies and their ability to be adaptable, flexible, and resilient in the face of challenges.
The most successful companies I’ve worked with are led by founders driven by passion and curiosity who surround themselves with strong and diverse teams.
Every single stakeholder — founder, investor, advisor, partner — is working out of a love for our pets, and that’s just a great job to go to everyday.
