WGI Group provides early stage capital to internet entrepreneurs.
We are a group of experienced internet entrepreneurs. We have had some success building our own companies, so we decided to form an investment group and help fund other entrepreneurs. Our most notable investment was in Right Media, which was acquired by Yahoo! in 2007. Our investments are managed by Michael Walrath, Noah Goodhart and Jonah Goodhart.
We are seeking to partner with passionate entrepreneurs who are not afraid to dream up big industry-changing ideas, yet who understand all the small steps and day-to-day execution that is required to implement a strategic concept. We like small teams that combine superior in-house technical talent with strong business acumen.
We generally make seed or early stage investments up to $500,000. Yet, funding is only a small part of the value we can provide. As entrepreneurs ourselves, we assist our portfolio companies by drawing from our own experiences in fundraising, hiring, scaling infrastructure, marketing and the many other facets of high-growth technology startups. We often co-invest with other investment groups including several Sand Hill Road venture capitalists, as well as top angel groups.
