Mission

We are one of the most active Seed investors in New York.
We partner with talented, focused founders building in
verticals such as Consumer, Enterprise and Healthcare.
Typically we invest between $50,000 and $500,000 in Seed or
Series A financings. The majority of our investments are based
in New York, NY and San Francisco, CA, though geography is not
a limitation in our investment process, including internationally.

Experience

The Great Oaks team collectively has decades of experience
investing in over 300 new businesses as seed or early investors.
We have an extensive network throughout the United States
comprised of leading tech founders, peer venture investors
and specific industry specialists. We leverage our network
and experiences in early stage investing in order to help each
and every portfolio company achieve its full potential.

Approach

Our goal is to help founders grow their businesses rapidly and
become profitable and self-sustaining, sell their business or
attract growth financing. We work most closely with founders
ahead of their Series A financings when they are attempting to
find product market fit and developing their product or service.
We align ourselves with founders in order to help negotiate and
secure the right growth investors, buyers and partners for the
lifetime of the business. We know that entrepreneurs build great
companies, not VCs. Our goal is to help and support founders and
ensure that their businesses develop sustainably in their early days.
