Founders Know Founders

The Meta Fund is a micro-fund that pools together LPs from a professional network of top-talent two-decades in the making with over a decade of investments utilizing our thesis and approach. We leverage the founders in our own networks and industries we know to invest primarily in early-stage founders and their teams; we help great teams grow.

We look for the best founders early in their next big thing. We invest in approximately one startup every month over the course of a year; our check sizes are between $25,000 and $150,000.

We Invest in Founder-Market-Fit

The Meta Fund invests primarily into Pre-Seed and Seed stage high-growth technology startups. We look for strong technical teams with charismatic founders building products in markets that are ripe for modernization.

We like to invest into markets we know well, which include: FinTech, Social Platforms, Developer Tools, E-commerce, and Two-sided Marketplaces. Above all else, we invest in founders that we believe in, we believe that the road-trip is as important as the road-map.

Pitch the Fund

We invest in early-stage founders and their teams; and we'd love to meet you and your team. Tell us a little bit more about yourself and what you're building and someone from our team will be in touch about next potential steps.
