    Emerson Street Partners is a seed investor and operational advisor to very early stage technology start-ups. Emerson will often work with a founding team when nothing exists beyond a compelling idea or concept. The firm is actively seeking projects in the following three areas: Web 2.0 meets the Enterprise; Enabling and managing next generation Data Centers; and Monetizing open source projects. Investments are typically in the $25,000 to $50,000 range and are often the first external cash injected into a new start-up. Emerson likes to focus on companies with capital requirements of less than $3,000,000 prior to cash flow positive.
