We are category agnostic but generally avoid investing in video game development, ”deep” sciences, and physical products.
We are an early-stage fund; however, we know early-stage can mean different things to different investors.
We encourage tech companies with a big vision, MVP, and business plan to apply for Outlander funding, especially if they fall within the following parameters:
Keep in mind that we want to see prototypes that show what the vision looks like not just theory, but in practice.
Here’s what we look for in an early-stage company prior to investing: an exceptional founding team with an outlandish vision, strong execution, and the right character.
Exceptional founding teams consist of 100% committed, full-time entrepreneurs of any age and experience level with disruptive ideas who are willing and able to take the risk of turning their ideas into reality. We have a strong preference for founding teams with the skill to build a product and take it to market.
Bonus points if you’re a team with domain experience and/or including second-time founders!
Referrals are not required, but they can help you rise above the noise.
Ideally, no more than a team of four.
As we explore the unknown of each new investment, our Field Guides are where we document all that we learn along the way.
So, whether you’re actively raising, trying to break into VC, or interested in our game-changing portfolio, our Field Guide's got you covered.
