SoftTech VC is an early stage venture capital firm managing seed stage funds, SoftTech VC II and SoftTech VC III. Our funds are backed by a mix of institutional and private investors. At SoftTech, we have consistently invested in 20 new opportunities a year.

Our founder and managing partner Jeff Clavier launched SoftTech VC in 2004, making the original 20+ investments (our non-traditional ‘Fund I’) as a business angel, investing his own capital, time and experience. As one of the original ‘super angels’ in the valley, Jeff developed SoftTech VC’s implementation of the micro-vc concept which has become so popular.

In 2007, we launched SoftTech VC II, a 15M seed fund focusing on the consumer Internet space, aiming at investing in 60+ companies over 3 years. In 2011, our $55M SoftTech VC III successor fund made its debut. Our principals have been involved in over 100 startups as investors, advisors or founders. SoftTech VC has seen 20+ exits, and our companies have raised over $800M in follow-on financing. Today, SoftTech VC is among the most active investors in early stage consumer Internet and mobile startups.
