ABOUT

LIGHTSHIP is a founder focused investment fund. We identify amazing technology driven startups

 

founded/led by underrepresented professionals, and surround them with the education, collaboration,

 

and capital necessary to scale toward exit. Our fund is modeled to offer underrepresented founders an

 

alternative to traditional firms— enabling them to avoid the challenges associated with traditional

 

funding.We join or lead rounds, we don’t require board seats to invest, and if/when we are invited to

 

serve on the board— we strongly support the founder. We’re also willing to bridge our portfolio

 

companies to their next round, and reserve capital so that we can participate in future rounds. At

 

Lightship, we bet on the jockey, as much as we bet on the horse. Founded and managed by

 

entrepreneurs, Lightship recognizes that early stage investment strategy begins with a great feeling

 

about a company and its founder— and expands to include growth centric portfolio management

 

built around key corporate and government alliances, access to professionaservices and training, and

 

meaningful follow-on. Our approach is comprehensive and constructed to cultivate organic,

 

sustainable growth.
