Investment Criteria

Here are the types of companies we are looking to invest in:

Stage Focus

We make early-stage investments: Seed to Series A where we can lead or co-lead a round with a $500,000 to $1.5 million investment. We want to actively participate in our portfolio companies at a board level to provide expertise and connections to grow the business.

Industry Focus

We invest in technology-driven companies that don't have high regulatory hurdles. We have a special interest in most B2B Software, AgTech, and FinTech companies that can demonstrate strong scalability.
