Is Valor the right investor for you?



  • Customer validation. We are looking for organic, hypergrowth startups outside of Silicon Valley and Tier One cities. If you can’t show us your customer growth, we’re not a fit for you yet.
  • Timing. You are raising your first round or some seed capital. We are early stage, equity-only investors.
  • Software. For us to invest in you, technology is core to your company. We invest exclusively in software companies.
  • Geography. You are located in the United States. Our preference is East Coast.

If we’re a fit, here’s how to share more and get a priority meeting scheduled fast–

1. Share a little about your startup.

    Get occasional emails from Valor general partner Lisa Calhoun on opportunities, non-dilutive funding, and resources for early-stage founders.

2. Take our investment assessment.

It’s fast, and you learn a ton about Valor and our investment style in the process.

3. Take advantage of Valor’s platform.

As you send us materials and share information, we invite you to take advantage of the Valor platform. You’ll get more information in email as you send in material. We have programs to help you scale.
