Tapping into our global network
We maintain relationships with a wide range of foundations, angel groups, VCs, and individuals funding innovative approaches to social change across the United States. We can be most helpful to funders seeking deeper connections with high-impact, early-stage ventures and other funding peers. When there’s mutual interest, we introduce our capital partners to ventures based on common stage, sector, location, and alignment of capital. Funders also receive monthly, concise updates about all ventures raising funds and new ventures we are working with—and are welcome to meet our ventures during programs. Oh, and there’s no cost to be a part of our network!
That’s a good question
The Uncharted venture funding team has built relationships with over 540 representatives from many of the world’s top funds, foundations, angels, and capital partners, focused on organizations in the social and environmental space. We call these our funders.
No, our only ask of funders is that they are open to engagement with our ventures.
- Some funders could potentially fund Uncharted ventures, but this is not an expectation.
- Some funders are not able to or interested in funding Uncharted ventures.
- All funders are driven by one thing: helping Uncharted ventures succeed in their fundraising efforts.
