Unlock Your Wealth Radio Shares How to Ask Investors for Money

Asking for money and catching that first break from an investor can be the hardest part for a startup entrepreneur. Considering there are thousands of companies who pitch investors, and only a select few are chosen. Fortunately, those startups in 2013 experienced a boom in venture capital seed funding, according to survey from investment-research firm CB Insights.

Here’s a look at the ten most active seed-stage venture-capital firms last year. One interesting thing to note here — in many cases, these VCs teamed up in investing in the startups mentioned below. (Note: The final four entrants actually tie for seventh place in the CB Insights survey.)

  1. 500 Startups — Founded by Facebook and Paypal investor Dave McClure, the Silicon Valley-based firm offers up to $250,000 in seed funding, entrepreneur events, and an accelerator program. Last year’s crop of recipients included Seattle-based construction industry file-sharing firm BuildersCloud, short-term retail lease marketplace Storefront in New York, and San Francisco online registry BabyList.
  2. Andreessen Horowitz — The storied firm started by Netscape co-founder Marc Andreessen and his early hireBen Horowitz cashed out with its Zulily investment at year-end. Startups it invested in last year include San Francisco nutrition-drink launch Soylent and college-to-career startup Koru in Seattle.
  3. SV Angel — This San Francisco venture firm focuses on startups in its hometown. Seed investments in 2013 included develop-tools company Ink and developer platform CircleCI.
  4. Lerer Ventures — New York-based Lerer operates the SohoTechLabs incubator, and invests only in seed-stage companies. Medical video-chat firm Doctor on Demand in San Francisco and Canadian retail-tech firm Tulip were two of Lerer’s 2013 investments.
  5. First Round Capital — With offices in San Francisco, New York, and Philadelphia, First Round only invests in seed-stage companies. “Sequel to SQL” firm Looker in San Francisco and experts-on-video network Grokker in San Jose were two of First Round’s 2013 early-money investments.
  6. CrunchFund — TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington’s VC firm made more than 20 seed-level investments last year, including Los Angeles-based artisan florist marketplace BloomNation, and San Francisco news site PandoDaily.
  7. Innovation Works — This VC focuses mainly on tech companies based in southwestern Pennsylvania. Last year’s seed investments included Pittsburgh’s BudgetSimple, which offers automated financial planning.
  8. Atlas Venture — This Cambridge, Mass.-based VC focuses on tech and life science startups. Investments included hometown startup data-analytics firm Nutonian, online workplace Sqwiggle in San Francisco, and mobile/web developer collaboration marketplace ooomf in Montreal.
  9. Connecticut Innovations — This state-focused firm concentrates on tech companies and launched a $200 million bioscience fund mid-year. In 2013, two rounds of seed funding went to ReadyDock in West Hartford, which manages secure tablets for hospitals, retailers, and funding also went to electronic data-exchange firm Logicbroker in Shelton.
  10. Founder Collective — Seed-stage focused Founder is based in Cambridge, Mass., and New York City, but invests worldwide. Startups funded in 2013 include kids’ building-set startup Seamless Toy Co. of Boulder, Colo., and social-purchasing firm HeartThis in San Francisco.
