The People's VC

We look for founders who are cash efficient, scrappy, and pragmatic. We focus on companies with $3mm to $30mm of run-rate revenue, with year over year growth of 20% to 100%+ depending on revenue. We'll invest anywhere in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, and broader Europe. We prefer to lead, but also follow. Our check is $1mm to $4mm. We like traditional growth rounds as well as leading or filling inside rounds, extensions, supplementing debt facilities with equity, small rounds in big companies, overlooked sectors, and fast rounds. Unlike other VC, we like hearing from founders directly. Email our Managing Partner at sammy@blossomstreetventures.com.
