VC Breakfast: Garage Technology Ventures - Focus on Software, services, clean technology, and material sciences (not life sciences)
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. 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
