Founders' Co-op, based in Seattle, Washington, is a seed-stage fund that helps extraordinary founding teams located outside the Bay Area build companies that the best VC firms in the world want to back.
The fund GPs -- who also lead and manage TechStars Seattle -- scout "secondary" innovation markets (i.e., everywhere but the Bay Area, with a particular focus on the Pacific Northwest) for extraordinary founders with the skills, insight and drive to build big, valuable companies in both Enterprise (60% of the portfolio to date) and Consumer (40%) sectors.
Founders Co-op portfolio companies have access to 60+ LP mentors, 150+ TechStars Seattle mentors and the founders of 40+ existing portfolio companies to create unfair advantage -- including helping them raising Series A+ capital.
The fund is managed by co-founders Andy Sack and Chris DeVore.
