Launchpad Venture Group is a Boston-based angel investment group that provides funding to early-stage companies. We are looking for innovative, technology-driven startup companies addressing a significant market opportunity where our investment can make a difference. We introduce entrepreneurs to potential investors through business plan presentations at monthly meetings. Launchpad Venture Group consists of individual angel investor members interested in achieving superior returns by financing privately held companies at an early stage of development.
Launchpad is the largest angel investing group in the Northeast and one of the top three most active groups in the United States in both deal volume and dollars invested. We have a broad base of very active members from a variety of backgrounds and professions, including the technology, financial service, industrial and life science communities. As a group, we are well connected to potential customers, service providers, partners and future sources of financing.
In a typical first round situation, Launchpad will invest between $250,000 and $750,000, and will usually syndicate its deals for a larger total investment amount. We then work with the company to proceed to the next stage. We can help your business grow by helping you recruit new members of your management team, develop strategic partners, refine product and go-to-market strategies, and raise your next round of venture funding.
Launchpad is focused on investments in the technology and life-science spaces and select opportunities in the green space. Launchpad will consider opportunities from other areas if group members have expertise and the opportunity is deemed to have the potential to generate superior returns. Primary sector focuses are software / IT, web and e-commerce, media and social media, mobile and wireless, medical devices, diagnostics, healthcare IT, networking and telecom, clean-tech, renewable energy and green-tech.
