A Local Investment Fund for Local Small Businesses

The Mohawk Valley Micro-Seed Investment Group – is creating its first investment fund dedicated to solving a problem that new entrepreneurs have here in the Mohawk Valley — access to enough investment capital to take that first step.

Small start-up investment in new entrepreneurs building companies and small businesses can provide opportunities for our citizens, improve quality of life and still provide a return over time. An investment at this level can help an entrepreneur with a first run of a product, capital to develop a working prototype or just apply the investment to resources or space. 

We’re talking investments at or around $10,000. This isn’t a lot — but it’s a start and really a magic number separating an idea and an actual chance. 

We’re very interested in supporting ventures led by women, immigrants/refugees, students or companies that can have a positive impact on the Mohawk Valley.
