Passionate about building Businesses

Tampa-St Pete is made up of an extraordinary group of professionals primarily in the Tampa Bay area with decades of knowledge and a variety of industry expertise.

Our Vision and Strategy

The SeedFunders team is unmatched helping early-stage startups in Florida. We are the only funding entity in the State that targets startups with a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) but little or no revenue.

We look for scalable, cutting-edge technology models as the perfect candidate for Seedfunders investment.

We’re big fans of the lean startup model and love it when a company understands and implements this model. What is “Lean Start-Up” Learn more.

Florida is our home and we look for local companies we can work with. We will occasionally consider companies from elsewhere, but the Sunshine State is our focus.
