Quake Capital NYC 2021
Quake Capital invests in early-stage companies and takes a founder-friendly approach. It looks to build startup ecosystems and enhance innovation across multiple industry verticals and geographies.
The goal is to merge investment capital with intense hands-on training and leadership development. By building the right ecosystems the program can rapidly accelerate pre-seed and seed-stage companies, often producing 9 to 12 months’ worth of growth over the course of a three-month accelerator program.
In terms of what Quake looks for – it focuses heavily on traction (50%), team (30%) and market opportunity (20%).
