At Ground Up, we believe that founders are taking as much of a bet on us as we are on them. Our relationship with founders is one in which we intend to grow together, learn from each other, and hold each other accountable.

The promise we make to our founders is that we will work harder. We will wake up every day trying to help you succeed and listen to your feedback along the way. That is what real partnership means to us.

We're lucky to work with



unannounced investments.

We're first check investors

We invest $250,000-$500,000 in pre-seed and seed stage startups in the United States and Israel. Our team is split between New York and Tel Aviv. We're generalists and only invest where we can add significant value. Our latest fund was raised in March 2018 and we reserve capital for follow-on rounds.
