We invest to help founders go from early revenues and angel money to hockey stick growth and larger VC rounds.

Who we target:

  • Software & IoT companies
  • Revenue generating (>$5K MRR tells us you're onto something)
  • Experienced founding teams (industry experience, management experience, previously employed at another startup, etc.)
  • Can scale quickly with access to capital and the right network

StartFast backs founders who are looking for more than just a check from their early investors. We'll invest $50,000 up front and work directly with your founding team to help you achieve hockey stick growth. We'll plug you into a world-class network of exited entrepreneurs, investors, and corporate executives to help you find crucial advisors and board members. We'll help you recruit the right early employees, fill out your management team, and engage top service providers. In exchange we ask for 5% common stock (no special preferences or controlling rights). We'll then help you fill out larger rounds of capital by taping into our network of investors and selectively invest up-to $750,000 ourselves.
