    K5 Ventures is a venture fund that partners with and invests in early-stage technology companies located in southern California, Silicon Valley, and China. K5 Ventures' go-to-market program first started as K5 Launch in 2010. Backed by a southern California venture fund, K5's founding team set out to accelerate early-stage companies and contribute to the region's emergence as a tech hub. Now known as K5 Labs, K5 is for companies that have attended an incubator or accelerator program previously and companies that have already launched.
