Investment Philosophy

Hoping to secure venture capital for your startup? Here’s our approach:

Stage We actively seek pre-seed, seed and early-stage (Series A) investments.
Amount Our typical investments range from $500K to $1M.
Sectors We primarily invest in software and IT, bioscience, clean tech, digital media and technologies important to advanced manufacturing such as photonics and advanced materials.
Geography We invest in companies headquartered in Connecticut or those willing to move here. 
Approach We value capital-efficient business models, proper governance and advisors (including a quality board of directors), experienced management teams, and milestone achievement to attract the next level of capital investment at an increased valuation.
Partnership Once we invest in your company, we become a true partner in your growth, offering strategic advice, connections and introductions, marketing and public relations support, educational resources and much more. Just ask any of the more than 100 companies we’ve invested in since inception.
