UTAH ONLY
PRE-SEED CAPITAL
THE FIRST TO FIND & FUND UTAH'S
NEXT BREAKOUT STARTUPS
PITCH Convoi Ventures

Utah lacks true “early stage, take a bet on founders before anyone else will” capital.
Convoi Ventures is helping to fill that gap.

As a Utah only and community first fund, we’re able to create a community unlike any other.

We bring our founders and LPs together regularly through clear-your-schedule-to-attend quality events and create invaluable relationships along the way.

WHO DO WE BACK?

We focus on founders first and foremost. We back founders:

  • that know how to build, not business guys with an idea trying to hire a dev shop
  • that make surprisingly fast progress every week and month with very little resources
  • with the ability to share their vision in a way that makes it easy for them to recruit, sell and fundraise
  • we’d want to work for
  • with a chip on their shoulder

These founders are easy to recognize because we are more energized after being with them, we learn from them and we can’t wait to tell others about them.
