Capital for

those who

deserve it

Early Light is reimagining investing for the world we want to live in.

Our mission

Our fund was conceived from a desire for a better type of VC. A system that evaluated founders based on merit - not their credentials, connections, or clout. A firm that searches for talent coast to coast, rather than just in Silicon Valley. A team that can move fast and act with conviction, all while creating incredible outcomes for its founders, employees, and LPs.

We're underdogs and we believe in underdogs. Show us a great company and we'll scale it.

Early Light took the time to learn our business and understand it, and not just superficially. Others take a glance from 30,000 feet and want to tell you everything right or wrong with your strategy, approach etc. Not ELV, they dug in and learned about us, the space, the competition and our client use cases and his guidance.

Early Light Ventures led our Seed Round and our experience with this group is as positive as it gets. As a founder, it’s amazing to find investors like ELV who are super knowledgeable about the fundraising process, share a similar philosophy on growing a great company and conduct themselves with sheer integrity. We are very grateful to be working with the Early Light team!
