The highest value-add to Founders
per dollar invested

We Invest. Fast.

We do 2 zoom meetings. You get our decision the day after the second zoom. At 12:00 pm

We are called 2 | Twelve for that reason.

We cut $100,000 checks in pre-seed / seed companies, Enterprise / Cloud only.


We don't lead rounds. We are focused on North America

We Help. For real.

We help you build your company. After we invest, we have an onboarding session with Founders to present our support team and partners (see below).

Our mission is to make sure you will raise a series A. And a B. We have direct Partner access to 2/3 of the top US VC firms.

We do quarterly meetings with Founders to prepare their next fundraising.
