    Founded 2018, Unusual Ventures is a new seed-stage venture capital firm created from first principles with one mission: to redefine seed investing and provide seed-stage entrepreneurs a distinct advantage as they go through that hardest leg of a startup journey -- from the Idea to the First Million Dollars in Revenue. The firm announced (April 2018) the closing of its heavily oversubscribed first fund, which was deliberately capped at $160M. Checks range from $1 to $10 million.
