SeedFund Capital helps investors and woman-led enterprises access the upside of​ highly-regulated, nature-based markets.​

Who We Fund


We Fund High-Potential Founders in High-Potential markets

Accelerating markets

Cannabis, psychedelics and industrial hemp are projected to be a $56B market by 2030. But fast-changing regulations create complexity for both entrepreneurs and investors. Without access to traditional capital, founders rely on private investment to grow. ​

Savvy Operators

Within this high-potential marketplace, we see women-led companies as hidden gems. We believe women are savvy operators and business owners — often better managers, who are more conservative with cash, and with less access to capital tend to have lower valuations than their male peers.

Scalable Models

That’s why SeedFund backs high-growth companies — that have experienced teams, early revenues, a scalable business model and clear view to exit.
