WHAT IS SPEARHEAD?

Spearhead backs founders with a $200K fund to start angel investing.

Founders also receive mentorship, including monthly masterclasses from top investors. As they progress, founders receive up to $1M to invest. Founders already help new companies with startup experience and technical advice. Now they can also help with capital.

This lets startups raise money from some of their most helpful advisors. It compensates founders for their time. And it creates more high-quality opportunities for downstream VCs.
