Our Firm

Vision: Thriving Enterprises, Vibrant Communities

Cultivation Capital is a venture capital firm that manages a family of funds focused on early-stage investing. Most of our initial investments are during a startup’s Seed or Series A phase, and our initial checks range from $100k – $3.5M. Our industries of focus include life sciences and health tech, software and IT, agriculture tech, and geospatial tech.

Founded in 2012, Cultivation Capital recognizes that promising companies are located all over the globe and that outstanding founders have a diversity of backgrounds. We are committed to building an inclusive portfolio and have invested in startups based in over 25 states or countries. Crunchbase News recently identified us as one of the 18 most active early-stage venture firms in North America. They have also ranked us one of the top five recently founded lead investors in the U.S. We lead about half of the investment rounds in which we participate.

We are committed to actively helping our portfolio companies with our operating experience and networks, usually taking on board responsibilities to do so.
