    Founded in late 2009 by 5 local business people dedicated to enhancing the local entrepreneurial ecosystem, SLO Seed Ventures has now grown to a group of about 20 local men and women and joined the Angel Capital Association. Since its founding, the focus of SLO Seed Ventures has been to provide early capital to local entrepreneurs with potential high-growth businesses as well as providing mentoring and other support to Cal Poly's entrepreneurial efforts including the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and the Cal Poly/SLO Hot House. As local residents and business people in San Luis Obispo county, SLO Seed Ventures members prefer to invest in companies on the Central Coast. SLO Seed Ventures is a member of the Angel Capital Association and syndicates deals with other angel groups. The group generally invests in Seed or Series A investment rounds of early-stage startups at $50,000 to $150,000 investments in return for 5-20% stakes.
