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 grow.

We are SpringTime Ventures. 
It’s time to grow.

Investment Criteria

Investment Thesis

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



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


Deal Structure

  • Target pre-money valuations of $3-6MM, though willing to look outside of that range
  • Preference for a lead investor identified, though not required; we love other smart partners along side
