Note from Grubstakes

Grubstake |ˈɡrəbstāk| During the Gold Rush this was the term used to describe the materials, provisions or money supplied to gold prospectors in return for a share in the resulting profits.

We are an informal network of angel investors based in Seattle that find, fund and mentor startups in the Pacific Northwest.

Our defining characteristic is our collaborative spirit. Members are accessible to others, responsive to inquiry and generous with their time. We help each other and the startups we fund. Grubstakes provides a safe space to discover, discuss and invest.

Many of our members started investing through the Seattle Angel Conference, and we continue its mission to foster an engaged, collaborative and smart angel investor community, and to enhance the opportunities for founders to be well financed and succeed through exit.


Grubstakes will syndicate our investments when approved by companies and with a suitable level of allocation.
