Our Roots Are Of The City.

Our vision is beyond.

Portland Seed Fund is a top-performing early-stage venture fund focused on investments in Portland and the Pacific Northwest. We seek entrepreneurs with potential and investors with vision.

About Portland Seed Fund

Since 2010, we have grown Portland Seed Fund from an idea to reality, becoming the most active venture capital investor in Oregon (Source: CB Insights). We demonstrated that our novel strategy of investing relatively small amounts of money into a diverse array of promising sectors and entrepreneurs could generate profound economic impact, change the world with life-and planet-saving technologies, and book superior returns for our investors.

Since inception, PSF leaders have invested in 200+ capital efficient companies with the potential to scale and create wealth for founders, investors and our region. We have a strong record investing in diverse teams.

"Portland Seed Fund believed in us when we were a small team just beginning to generate revenue. The advice we received and the contacts we made as part of PSF were invaluable to us as we’ve grown to become the industry's most respected identity-as-a-service platform."
