Notation Capital is a pre-seed venture capital firm based in NYC. Our mission is to help technical founders turn their obsessions into valuable products and companies.
Notation Capital is a pre-seed fund, which means we typically invest in very early stage companies raising initial rounds of $500k or less.
We syndicate our pro-rata allocations in our underlying portfolio companies that raise subsequent rounds being led by top-tier venture capital firms that we work closely with and trust.
More rarely (2x per year), for pre-seed stage companies with exceptional founding teams that have a proven track record and choose to raise larger amounts of capital to start ($1.5M+), we may syndicate a portion of our allocation in order to achieve our initial ownership targets.
Notation Capital's core venture fund is backed by well known and respected institutional LPs. We use AngelList transparently and responsibly, and we assign all of the carry earned back to our core fund and LPs. We don't take carry personally as GPs in order to avoid conflicts of interest and misalignment with our core fund.
