First Round Capital is an early-stage venture capital firm. As seed-stage investors, we often provide a company's first outside capital – and typically invest alongside angel investors. Our typical initial investment in a company is around $500,000 – but we’ve gone both higher and lower.
We're not afraid of investing in pre-revenue companies, and we understand the challenges of launching a new product. That's why we like to take an active role in the companies we invest in.
Time is a priceless resource for every entrepreneur, so we try not to waste it. We operate as an entrepreneurial shop and make quick decisions: no investment committees, no months of negotiations. When we invest, we usually decide in days.
First Round Capital invests nationally and has offices in San Francisco, New York and Philadelphia.
