    Description:

    Founded in 2010, Bullpen Capital is the first venture firm to specialize in Post-Seed funding. Bullpen makes follow-on investments in start-ups funded by super-angels. Bullpen's market focus is on the social-mobile web sector (both enterprise and direct to consumer), which is experiencing a new tech boom. Bullpen works with its super-angel partners to: Extend a seed round to give a start-up more time to prove itself; Fund a company requiring more early money than the usual seed deal; Restart a company that is a 'fallen angel' but still has great promise; and Fund a 'rising star' needing a small B round it before it goes to VC auction. December of 2016, the firm announced closing Bullpen III. The $75 million fund was oversubscribed with participation from Greenspring Associates, Venture Investment Associates (VIA), Oberlin College, and other institutional and individual investors
