Rough Draft 101
We focus on Pre-Seed and Seed investments, with checks between $100-$150k. Have an idea? It’s never too early to pitch us!
We’re industry-agnostic, and we all have different interests and specialties. Don’t hesitate to apply.
For now, we focus on US-based companies (incorporated as a C-Corp in Delaware).
We strive to be students’ first checks and are committed to being partners in their entrepreneurial journeys. We back ambitious, bold, curious, and energetic teams with a strong bias to action and ability to follow through.
We are committed to sourcing and working with diverse founders and funders. No matter where you come from, what you study, or how you identify, we want to hear from you. Cold applications are welcome and, in fact, encouraged!
