Garage Technology Ventures is a seed-stage and early-stage venture capital fund. We’re looking to invest in entrepreneurial teams with big ideas and a need for seed capital to turn their ideas into great companies.
We are willing to invest in unproven teams attacking unproven markets with unproven solutions. We’re not interested in teams that are creating the nth solution to the same old problem nor companies who are trying to improve things by only 10 or 20 percent.
On a more tactical level, the characteristics of the companies we invest in are:
Sectors: Software, services, clean technology, and material sciences (not life sciences)
Funding: Seeking seed or early investments from $500,000 to $3,000,000
Geography: California or Western US based
Business model: requiring less than $5,000,000 to reach break even or sustainability
