    Description:

    Formerly known as SoftTech VC, Uncork is a seed-stage venture capital firm with $300 million under management. The firm is currently investing out of two funds: a $100M Seed fund and a $50M Opportunity fund earmarked for larger investments in mature, existing portfolio companies. Founded in 2004 as SoftTech VC, the firm raised one of the very first institutional Seed funds in 2007: $15M Fund II. Now deploying its $100M fifth fund, Uncork has invested in over 200 companies. Sixty have had successful outcomes so far. Uncork also totally wiped out 50 times (because building and scaling a company to success is never easy). The firm's companies have raised nearly $4B in follow-on financing over the years.
