2.12 Angels

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 12:00p PT.


We are called 2.12 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.

Our mission is to make sure you will raise a series A. And a B.


We have a tool that will help you find the best fit with the right VC partner for your next rounds. And we have direct Partner access to 2/3 of the top US VC firms that do series A & B.


We also help you build a company. After we invest, we have an on-boarding session with Founders to present them with our support team and partners (see below).
