If you were to ask one of our portfolio companies what characterizes SoftTech VC, they would probably use a number of these keywords: experience, hard working, support, advice, connections, early stage, honest, direct, straightforward. Oh yeah, and generally fun to work with.
SoftTech VC is a seed venture capital firm, started in 2004, which has become one of the most active investor in early stage Web 2.0 startups - often referred to as a "micro VC" or "micro-cap VC".
In 2007, the firm launched a $15M seed fund focusing on the consumer Internet space, aiming at investing in 60+ companies over 3 years. In 2011, a $35M successor fund made its debut. Our principals have been involved in over 100 startups as investors, advisors or founders.
