Early-stage startups often lack access to the capital and support they need to grow. Accion’s seed-stage investment initiative, Accion Venture Lab, provides financial and post-investment support to address these needs. Investing since 2012, and backed by third party commercial and impact investors since the launch of our fund in 2019, we typically invest U.S. $500,000 in seed-stage startups and can continue to support companies as they grow through follow-on capital that drives scale. Accion Venture Lab is an active and engaged investor, creating value in our portfolio by providing investees with strategic and operational support across a broad range of functional areas.
