Govtech Fund


We’re proud to lead the first-ever venture capital fund dedicated to government technology startups.

Our startups build software tools for government employees that significantly improve how they deliver a wide array of government services including foster care, law enforcement, parking management, municipal bond issuance, procurement, food safety, and education administration, to name just a few.

To support their double-digit monthly growth, our portfolio companies have raised hundreds of millions in capital from leading venture capitalists such as First Round Capital, Lowercase Capital, General Catalyst, Bezos Expeditions, Andreessen Horowitz, Cowboy Ventures, Initialized Capital, Khosla Ventures, Jim Breyer and many more.
