We don't "roll up our sleeves"

We understand that founders do the heavy lifting, but we are here to support through all the ups and downs and help in any way possible.

We are operators and entrepreneurs who are building a venture firm we wish we had when building our companies.

We are immigrants with a diverse set of perspectives.  

We have hired 1000s of employees, raised over $200M in venture capital, created over $2B enterprise value, scaled internationally, and built consumer and enterprise startups.

We want to help you do the same.

We are S28 Capital.

Who are we? 

We’re a bunch of entrepreneurs trying to learn and rethink venture capital at the same time.

What Stage Do We Invest?

We write $1M to $5M checks into early-stage companies. We typically end up leading or co-leading a Seed round. However, we do end up participating in the follow on rounds of our portfolio companies including Series A, B, and beyond.

Usually at the time we invest, a business has a product or prototype and may have some degree of traction – whether in revenue or in enthusiastic users. That said, nothing is too early for us. In fact, we’ve committed capital into companies before they were even incorporated.

Do We Invest In Silicon Valley?

While we meet and invest in many teams from San Francisco and the Bay Area, we’ve also invested in Waterloo, Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, Israel, Asia, UK, France, and Turkey.

We’re a Silicon Valley-based firm, but recognize there are great teams doing incredible things outside of the US. We spend a lot of time in Asia and Europe as well and pride ourselves on keeping a global perspective.

What Interests Us?

Our main focus as a firm is investing in software and technology B2B businesses. Our portfolio tends to be either product-driven applications, developer tools, and infrastructure stack such as data & security.

Being engineers and CTOs ourselves, we are drawn to businesses where founders are driven by technology or in the craft of building a product. We often draw from some of the seemingly mundane decisions we made as CTOs and founders while building our own companies.

How can we help?

Apart from connecting to the right people, recruiting, user acquisition, fundraising, board management, etc., we can help in cutting through the noise and focusing on the right questions to ask. We really have played the role founders have to play, from early days all the way to when a company becomes significant, and we can help you with the same. We have managed hyper-growth as well as layoffs as part of our journeys. We hope to at least make new mistakes with you.

How Do We Decide On Investments?

Being a small team gives us the ability to move fast. We ask ourselves whether this company will end up mattering down the road. And, if we are able to see glimpses of how that would be possible. Understanding how the founders arrived at the specific problem and the approach they have convinced themselves to take, helps us to build conviction and move with confidence.

Our Team

We believe in not only forging a strong partnership but cementing lifelong friendships.
