Our Approach

We are The People's VC: we invest in venture deals but we’re not traditional venture capitalists. We like SaaS, marketplaces, and eCommerce. We move fast. We get to a quick “no” in a few days or a firm commitment in 2 to 4 weeks. We can invest in traditional growth rounds, but also look at inside rounds, small rounds bigger VC wont bother with, out-of-favor industries, bridges, extensions, down rounds, re-caps and special situations. We’ve got portfolio companies all over the US and we do look at international opportunities. Email our Managing Partner any time: sammy@blossomstreetventures.com.

Our 4-Week Process

If you want to explore partnering with us, this is how the next few weeks will look:

Week 1

Founders supply the data. We deliver a term sheet, or follow another lead.

Week 2

We go to our board for initial approval. This meeting is the hardest.

Week 3

We meet the broader team and finish any confirmatory diligence.

Week 4

We have a final board meeting after confirmatory diligence, and make a full commitment.

Deal Structures

We invest in plain-vanilla preferred stock that follows National Venture Capital Association guidelines. You won’t see redemption rights, claw-backs and other gotcha’s. We do not do investor controlled boards. We pride ourselves on founder-friendly, transparent term sheets which also streamline the legal process.
