Startup companies rely heavily on venture capitalists to fund their businesses in order to improve development, financial and operational capacity. There are lots of venture capitalists today and Lowercase Capital is one of them, but it comes with a twist.
As stated by the company’s founder, “We start by rolling up our sleeves; we help design front pages, invent new services, prioritize product features, negotiate partnerships, and deal with the everyday professional and personal challenges of startup life”.
Founded by Chris Sacca in December 2007, Lowercase Capital invests in startup businesses and later stage companies. It also plays an advisory role. The company received $8.5 million in funding from Lowercase Angel Fund in 2010.
To date, the company has invested in a lot of startup companies including Tred, Moveline, Artillery, Big Frame, Backupify, Threadflip, Electric Imp., Locu, UpNext, InboxQ and Uber to name a few.
What is great about Lowercase Capital is that it does not restrict itself to only supporting companies from a particular industry. The company provides funding to startups from different industries, including IT and travel.
Lowercase Capital enables startup companies to grow and helps fuel the ambition of entrepreneurs. Aside from providing funding to startup companies, the venture capital company also gives time and attention so the startups they support can have a higher chance of success.
