We are Founders investing in Founders. We started Seed Round Capital because we recognized a need in the market to help early-stage startups secure funding by providing them with fundraising guidance. Our mentors are all seasoned entrepreneurs who are passionate about helping you grow your company.
All mentors are current or former members of the Entrepreneurs' Organization, a prestigious international association where entrepreneurs of seven to nine-figure businesses share business practices and hone their skills. Our seasoned mentors have successfully founded and managed multiple businesses, most with over 25 years of experience.
