A full-service venture firm, with a family of early-stage funds
Explore our Funds
Laconia is a transparent, collaborative, and community-driven firm. We leverage our portfolio companies, limited partners, and personal & professional contacts to maximize our network knowledge. We provide full insight into our process and maintain steadfast commitment to our investment thesis:
Stage: Late seed
We define the late seed stage as having an in-market product, paying customers, and signs of product-market fit. We write $250,000 - $1 million checks, typically in rounds of $1 million - 3 million.
We invest exclusively in B2B companies with relatively light future capital requirements in all sectors. We do not invest in device healthcare, biotech, agtech, energy, and military applications.
Geography: Northeast metros
We focus on companies based in the New York, Philadelphia, Boston, and DC metro areas. Committed to being on-call 24/7 for our founders, we insist on being within arm's reach.
Join our Network through Mentor Meetings
We are committed to increasing access to entrepreneurs who may be outside the tech and venture club. To make ourselves easier to meet, we are opening our office doors for in-person weekly Mentor Meetings.
Consider this not an investor pitch but an opportunity to ask us any and all questions about building your business, funding your company, and navigating the venture & tech ecosystem. We promise straightforward feedback, honesty, and full transparency into our perspective.
Partner with Us
As part of our mentorship initiatives, we are thrilled to join forces with tech community leaders in NYC. Below are some of the partner organizations with which we host office hours, workshops, and mentor meetings.
