Mind the Seed Bootcamp

About Mind the Seed

MTS is a seed venture capital fund created in 2012 by ex-Googler Marco Marinucci to invest in startups with an international soul. We invests in 6 to 12 startups per year (usually with first checks in the $30K-150K range) providing both seed funding  and value-added services.
We leverage the support of our partner Mind the Bridge and the scouting activities we run for Startup Europe Partnership.
We tend to invest in startups where we can identify a clear exit strategy.

The Boot Camp

The program is invitation only and dedicated to a dozen startups identified by MTS Fund as a potential good investment target.

Startups are invited to pitch and meet with MTS Fund general partners and other partner investors.

The Boot Camp will help us select the best 5/6 projects.
The expected result is an investment offer from MTS Fund.

Investment terms can vary based on the maturity of the project, but we are usually OK with accepting the same terms of your last raise.
MTS Fund first check is in the 25K-150K USD range.
As part of the due diligence (when we think is relevant) you can be invited and sponsored to spend sometime with us in San Francisco.
