Let us help you to turn your vision into a successful business!


We are industry/market agnostic, typically fund in the $150K to $1M range for deals offering preferred stock or a convertible note (in some cases a SAFE note, preferably with a post-money cap) and with a valuation/cap under $20M ($3-10M is our preferred range).

Companies should be a US C-Corporation (or the Canadian equivalent). We do not invest in companies/deal outside the US and Canada.


Submit an application and we will be in touch. 

If you meet our criteria and either our general or medtech/life sciences pre-screen committee determines that your deal may be a good fit, we will invite you into a screening meeting to pitch to all of our 100+ members.

From there, deal teams comprised of interested investors will have the ability to do deeper due diligence, nominate your deal for investment from our Fund and/or invest individually.
