What we’re about

We love startups. We love the grit, passion, and innovation that entrepreneurs bring to the world.

 

We believe the Rocky Mountain region is ripe with opportunities to invest in disruptive technologies, but most opportunities are starved for good resources.

 

We believe in a company culture that inspires action, accountability, and intention.

We have a deep soul for this, and we want our companies to be the same. We know ideas are not enough.

 

We invest in trustworthy leaders who have deep domain experience. We want them acutely aware of the people, partners, and resources they need to scale.

 

WE ARE SPRINGTIME VENTURES.
IT’S TIME TO GROW.

How We Work

FOUNDER FOCUSED

We keep things straight forward. Founder friendly isn’t a catch phrase, we mean it: from expedited decision making to a partner mentality.

WE CARE

We see startups as an opportunity to foster healthy businesses, stronger community and world-changing tech.

GROUNDED VISION

In startups short-term focus can easily kill a great business. Our goal is sustainable growth and the time to build stable companies that scale.

IT'S ABOUT TIME

Time is a valuable commodity. From a streamlined investment process to candid feedback, we do our best not to waste yours.

THERE WITH YOU

While we give founders space to do their magic, we are not aloof investors. We get our hands dirty to help our startups hit key milestones.

ABOUT FUNDING

As a fund, we typically invest $100-200k (with potential for follow-on). We help the lead investor to close seed rounds.

STARTUP ECOSYSTEM

We are an active part of the startup communities across Colorado and the Rockies. That connection drives opportunities, businesses & partnerships.

WE LOOK FOR

Companies we choose to partner with have strong Team, Product & Market. Without these we don't see a viable path to success.

The Team

What Founders Say

Ashley Colpaart ceo food corridor speaking
The SpringTime Ventures team are epic partners. From the very beginning of our talks, Matt has been a believer in me as an operator and an avid supporter of The Food Corridor. The 1:1 support I get from Jeff is priceless.  In addition, Rich and Rick are always willing to make introductions to operators in adjacent industries or provide feedback and insight on strategy.

 

They provide me with an all-star team of supporters and resources, while allowing me the space to operate and make the decisions needed to move our company forward.”

-Ashley Colpaart  |  Founder & CEO @ The Food Corridor

Working with SpringTime continues to be a real amplifier for Shotzr. The team at SpringTime understands the “operator” perspective and complements it with deep access to their network and real insights we are using daily to drive the business forward.

-Mark Lemmons  |  Cofounder @ SHOTZR

SpringTime Ventures is a great partner for early stage tech companies. They moved quickly in diligence to get us a decision and the resources we needed. SpringTime approaches our relationship in a way that demonstrates their desire to sit on the same side as entrepreneurs.

Here are the basics we
look for in Startups

Investment Thesis

The kind of company impact

A technology that is transforming core industries. Founders with deep domain expertise.

Geography

Where our startups live

Headquartered in the Rockies or other secondary markets. We love to travel to cool international places, but do not invest there.

Industries

The kind of companies and products we like

Open to most industries and companies with venture-scale business models. We do not invest in food & beverage, non-tech consumer goods, pharma, cannabis, biotech, or medical devices.

Deal Structure

Where you need to be

We target pre-money valuations of $3-6MM (though we are willing to look outside of that range on occasion). Preference for a lead investor identified, though not required; we love other smart partners alongside.
