    Founded 2008, LaunchCapital is committed to providing the capital needed for businesses in the initial stages of development. Targeting seed stage investment opportunities that typically require between $50k and $150k, LaunchCapital leverages two distinct investment vehicles allowing for start-up businesses to optimize their capital structure. Over the past decade, LaunchCapital is proud to have invested in over 200 companies that are reinventing industries across the nation. LaunchCapital Ventures follows the traditional venture capital model of equity investing in exponential growth opportunities. A separate funding vehicle, LaunchCapital Small Business, provides a blend of equity and debt financing for businesses that will generate near-term revenue, have linear growth expectations and generally have a local or regional reach. LaunchCapital has a core focus in technology, consumer and medical businesses. LaunchCapital has offices in Boston, New York, New Haven, and San Francisco.
