The People's VC

We're not unicorn hunters and don't believe in high burn, uneconomic models that reach for market share. We look for solid businesses built by founders who are cash efficient, scrappy, and pragmatic. We focus on companies with $2mm to $25mm of run-rate revenue and year over year growth of 50%+. We'll invest anywhere in the US or Canada, and can look at international opportunities. We prefer leading, but also follow. We like plain-vanilla preferred stock in traditional growth rounds, inside rounds, recaps, small rounds, secondaries, and restructurings. Unlike other VC, we like hearing from founders directly. Email our Managing Partner at sammy@blossomstreetventures.com.
