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: email@example.com.

Our 4-Week Process
If you want to explore partnering with us, this is how the next few weeks will look:
Founders supply the data. We deliver a term sheet, or follow another lead.
We go to our board for initial approval. This meeting is the hardest.
We meet the broader team and finish any confirmatory diligence.
We have a final board meeting after confirmatory diligence, and make a full commitment.
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.
