Everyone at Founder Collective has started a technology company.
We love building stuff. We aren’t investors who sit in an ivory tower analyzing spreadsheets. We’ve lived through the emotional roller coaster of leading startups so we have huge respect and empathy for our founding teams.
Most large venture funds are not structured in a way that is well aligned to founders at the beginning. At Founder Collective, we live and die by our seed investments. We invest in your company because we think you’re going to build something important. We don't invest to buy ourselves optionality for a later round. As seed investors, we’re conviction driven and avoid protracted decision-making and unnecessary diligence.
