SoCal Venture Pipeline brought to you by Silicon Valley Bank

Matching Series-A ready SoCal startups with venture capital investors

Get matched with the right Series A investors.

Since 2015, companies in this program have raised +$650M in Institutional Series A!!

Are you raising a Series A round of funding ($4M+) in the next 6 to 12 months? The SoCal Venture Pipeline program selects SoCal entrepreneurs raising institutional funding and directly introduces them to capital providers from our deep nationwide relationship network.

We take no fees, equity or compensation from startups. The program is generously underwritten by Silicon Valley Bank as well as law firms Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, and KPPB LLP. When you’re fabulously successful, we will brag about you.

Why are we doing this? We are committed to ensuring that entrepreneurs from all backgrounds and SoCal communities have access to capital and opportunity. The SVP program's primary goal is to fix the access gap that is holding back entrepreneurs in need of additional capital who don't currently have access to the right network of investors to help them continue to grow and thrive. We are also giving nationwide investors access to the unparalleled innovation network within SoCal -- the value goes both ways! 

How it works:

  1. You apply by providing detailed non-proprietary information.

  2. Applications are reviewed monthly by our neutral investment committee of seasoned investors. We only accept startups that fit the program requirements and who will be attractive to institutional Series-A investors. 

  3. Startups accepted into the program will be matched based on their investment profile and receive personal introductions to targeted capital investors.
