Ground Squirrel Ventures

Ground Squirrel Ventures is the focal point of a network of angel and seed stage investors based out of Boston, MA. Our goal is to extend the resources and capabilities of the Boston ecosystem to underserved markets and industries. Our primary focus has been in clean energy projects and in frontier markets - often both - which are where we feel we can have the greatest impact.

But Who Are We?

In a lot of ways being an Angel or seed stage investor is not all that different from being an entrepreneur. You have to create an image of what you want your business to be. You have to accept that there are things you don’t know and be willing to seek out help. You have to decide what makes you different from your competitors, what you want people to remember about you. But you also have to realize that no one creates in a vacuum. We all want to explain what makes us different, but it’s less about defending your uniqueness and more about deciding what your most important focuses and values are and doing your best not to lose sight of them.

Our Focus

We look for opportunities where capital can make a real difference in the success of a business

All of us do better if each of us do better. We're here to contribute skills and capital to do our part.

We're learners, investors and mentors. We want you to succeed - we only do well if you do.
