What are we looking for?

A Remarkable Team
We are looking for formidable teams that have a big vision, the substance to get there, and the tenacity to break through brick walls.
Early Stage Companies
We prefer to enter at the seed and Series A round, as we find we can add the most value there. We support founders in raising follow-on capital from other top VCs for subsequent rounds.
Demonstrable Traction
While our qualifications differ depending on industry, we look for companies that can demonstrate early product-market fit. This means you've moved beyond the idea stage and have compelling data that proves your early users/customers want what you are providing.
Tech and Tech-Enabled
We are open to tech and tech-enabled companies in any industry. To see some of the industries that we currently support, check out our portfolio page.
Big Markets
We fund companies with the potential for enormous growth. We look for startups that serve large, multi-billion dollar total addressable markets (TAMs).
Local and Global Reach
Though we are based in Silicon Valley, we invest globally. FundersClub has funded startups in 21 countries across the globe, and we are always looking to expand into new countries.
