Seed Fund

The Launch Place Seed Fund looks for investment opportunities in which our capital can serve as a critical catalyst to specific milestone achievements, whether it is follow-on capital, first customer(s), or another significant breakthrough in the company’s growth. Our Fund’s investment can be first money for companies seeking angel and other equity-based investors, and in some instances, our capital can act as an accelerator for companies needing more limited capital to launch. We have the flexibility to structure deals as debt, convertible debt or equity. The typical range of investments made in the portfolio companies ranges from $100,000 to $150,000, with the ability to fund up to $250,000 per company.

Our objective is to provide portfolio companies with the capital, competencies and care they need to efficiently achieve success. Consequently, we combine our strategic investments with our business consulting, training and incentive programs so that management teams have the right tools at the right time in their company’s growth.

In addition to seed fund investments, space subsidies are available. 

The Launch Place Seed Fund is a fully owned subsidiary of The Launch Place governed by its Board of Directors. All investments are evaluated by an independent Investment Committee.
