Blume Ventures

Blume Ventures provides seed funding in the range of $50K - $250K to early-stage tech-focused/tech-enabled ventures. We like to work with founders who are pathologically obsessed about solving problems that impact large markets. As one quote goes – “ideas are passé, one simply needs to invest in great people – the rewards will come”. Our strategy is to be ahead of the wave, to take calculated risks on emerging business models well before the market has caught the wave. We believe that building capital moats by themselves are, and will continue to be, an undifferentiated winning strategy. In the eyes of founders, we’re seeing that the breadth and depth of our team, our rich ecosystem, and our platform approach are their raison d’être for partnering with Blume.
