Some Of Our Alumni

Visit our Member Directory for a full listing.

Are you:

A software company that helps HR departments hire without discrimination?

Selling a new line of healthy/organic food?

Running a cafe that employs women in low-income communities?

Impact comes in many shapes and sizes. We love supporting all leaders who are out to make the world a better place.

Who Can We Help?

POST LAUNCH

Got customers? Making $10k a month? Looking to scale to the next level?

Our Roundtables are designed so that you can leverage the collective knowledge of not only Spring and our network, but also get peer support from fellow leaders like yourself. Think of it as your informal Board of Advisors.

FUNDING READY

Let’s face it, fundraising is tough! We’re here to eliminate unnecessary friction by helping you avoid rookie mistakes so that you can speed up the process.

We specialize in the seed round (typically $150k-1.5mil). We open doors for you, make investor introductions, help with negotiations, and provide hands-on investor prep support. We do not invest in our own companies – WHY? Because this ensures that we are on your side, and that we have your best interest at heart when it comes to providing support and advice.
