    Description:

    Foundry Group is a venture capital firm focused on making investments in early-stage Internet and software startups. The firm launched its sixth fund in Spetember of 2016, Foundry Group Next, with $500M. The firm's fifth fund of $225 million, was launched in July of 2015. Since its inception, Foundry Group has invested in more than 100 companies as institutional investors, and over 50 companies as angel investors. The firm prefers to make small seed investments of $250,000 to $500,000 to help promising entrepreneurs across North America. Investment themes Foundry is currently pursuing include adhesive tech, distribution, human computer interaction, marketplace, and protocol. Except for Foundry's late stage fund, each fund has 30 investments (+/- 2) in it. Each is roughly invested 1/3rd into companies in Colorado, 1/3rd into companies in the Bay area, and 1/3rd into companies in the rest of the U.S. (Boston, NY, Seattle, LA, Portland, Austin, Minneapolis, Washington D.C., Burlington, and Phoenix).
