Invest with Seaplane Ventures

Seaplane Ventures is an early stage venture capital firm based in Austin, TX. We take a conviction approach to investing in tech-enabled US startups with business models geared around network effects and recurring revenue streams.

The Seaplane Venture Fund is closed to new investors. Seaplane welcomes conversations with future potential LPs, though, and interested investors may register their interest for our next fund. Investors interested in investing alongside Seaplane on a deal-by-deal basis may do so through Seaplane's AngelList syndicate.
