SENIOR TALENT

From the corporate and startup worlds

There is an adage ‘invest in what you know.’ Our partners have held C-level roles in major corporations and started businesses across a wide spectrum of sectors. Most funds have expertise in the basics, but the most disruptive companies often fall outside of the basics.
We know more and so we can invest more.

AN EXPANSIVE NETWORK

Locally and beyond, our network is practically limitless

Florida is a collection point for people from around the world. The collection of partners at SeedFunders is no exception. Our group has ties well beyond Tampa Bay and we’re only a couple degrees of separation from nearly anyone we can connect with to help our investments.

HANDS-ON PARTICIPATION

What early stage companies so desperately need, but rarely get

Our partners have met weekly for 2 hours since the inception of SeedFunders. This level of activity in an angel group speaks to our culture of high energy – deep involvement with our early stage investments. The partners know what new companies need and join SeedFunders to roll up their sleeves and participate.
