Pull up a chair. Let's talk about the future.

What We're About

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 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.

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.

About
Funding

As a fund, we typically invest $100-200k (with potential for follow-on). We often help identify other investors who may be interested in closing the round.

Startup
Ecosystem

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

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.

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.

What Founders Say

Here are the basics
we look for in Startups

Investment Thesis

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

Industries

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

Deal Structure

We target pre-money valuations of $4-10MM (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

Our Region

We are region-agnostic. We often invest in markets with less investor density, but are not limited by a regional mindset.
