Our Approach

We like SaaS, marketplaces, and consumer subscription. We move fast. We get to a quick “no” in a few days or a firm commitment in 2 to 4 weeks. We do traditional growth rounds and special situations like leading/filling inside rounds, extensions, supplementing debt facilities with equity, small rounds in big companies, restructurings, and fast rounds. We’ve got portfolio companies all over the US and UK. We'll invest anywhere in the 1st world. Email our Managing Partner any time: sammy@blossomstreetventures.com.

Deal Structures

We invest in plain-vanilla preferred stock that follows National Venture Capital Association guidelines. You won’t see redemption rights, claw-backs, re-vesting, and other gotcha’s. We do not do investor controlled boards. Our term sheets are founder-friendly, flexible, and transparent which also allow us to close quickly.
