Pre-Seed Stage VC Funds

Goals

To develop of list of some top global pre-seed venture capital funds that are writing $500,000 checks.

Early Findings

WONDER VENTURES FUND II

Wonder Ventures has established its new Wonder Ventures Fund II, which is investing $250,000-500,000 per company. They are based in Santa Monica, CA.

GOLDEN VENTURES

Golden Ventures, based in Canada, writes checks ranging from $500,000 to $1.2 million.

UNCORK CAPITAL

According to Signal, a venture capital database, Uncork Capital, based in California, is a top seed-stage investor in several areas, including SaaS and consumer products, with minimum investments of $500,000.

OTHER POTENTIAL TOP COMPANIES

A 2018 report by Pitchbook lists the most active angel and seed-stage investors. Topping the list are Y Combinator, Innovation Works, Elevate Ventures, Slow Ventures, Social Capital, Alumni Ventures Group, BAM Ventures, and others that may yield additional competitors.

Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
As the initial research has identified three venture capital companies that meet the criteria, as well as a list of other companies to investigate, we would recommend continuing the research to identify 7-10 additional venture capital companies writing $500,000 checks. Identifying the top companies may prove difficult, but identifying companies that are among the top is more feasible.
