Who We Fund
We invest in deeply human problems, especially in the areas of health, work and caretaking. If you’re an early stage woman-founded tech company in North America ready to change the world, we want to meet you.
Graham & Walker does two things: we support founders & we invest in founders. Wherever you are, we are here for you.
Our fund is industry agnostic, with a focus on software or technology-enabled companies. We invest across North America, at the pre-seed and seed stages. We like to see evidence of demand before joining a cap table.
If you are a woman or nonbinary founder building a startup and don’t have technology at the core of your business, we are rooting for you, and we welcome you joining our founder community! You can learn more about what that entails on our founders page.
We invest between $25,000 and $400,000 depending on the company stage and round size.
We invest in pre-seed and seed rounds.
At this time, we are only able to invest in companies that are primarily domiciled in the United States and Canada. This includes both where they are incorporated, and where the majority of their employees reside.
Fill out this form and let us know you are looking for funding. All companies that qualify are also automatically invited to join our founder community, which is managed separately from the fund.
You can expect to hear from us within two weeks. If you’re selected for further review, we will schedule an initial meeting with you to learn more about your team and company. The full investment process will move from there. We are a very small team looking at a large number of opportunities, and we strive to honor your time by giving your application our full attention.
Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications, we are unable to provide feedback to everyone. If we meet with you once or more and ultimately decline to invest, we offer feedback if and only if you specifically ask for it. We ask that you complete and send us a self-evaluation prior to your feedback meeting to enrich the conversation.
Our Limited Partners (LPs)
Where money comes from is just as important as where it’s invested. Our LPs (that’s VC speak for those who invest in a fund) are a diverse group of super smart investors who believe in our investment thesis AND in our mission.
