We are founders and operators investing in today's entrepreneurs.
Active Capital is the culmination of our life's work. As founders, we've built companies and cultures worth millions and billions. As investors, we've helped dozens of founders build great businesses with amazing potential. And as friends, we've had a lot of fun along the way.
We've designed Active Capital to lead seed rounds for B2B SaaS companies. We are based in Texas but will invest in founders across the US. We prefer companies that can get to market with very little capital and we believe we can best help founders once they start to grow.
We met at Rackspace and have been working together ever since.
