The Pre-seed Builder Fund (or Builder Fund) was created to financially and operationally support the development of startup companies run by entrepreneurs who demonstrate a socially or economically disadvantaged background that hinders access to traditional forms of capital and executive networks at the pre-seed stage. Companies selected for a Builder Fund qualify for investment and/or executive support to better position the company to receive follow-on, professional investment. The Builder Fund differentiates itself by identifying exceptional investment opportunities that are often overlooked by traditional funding organizations, by advancing the development of those opportunities. This program supports TEDCO’s overall mission of identifying, investing in, and helping to build great, Maryland-based companies that grow and last.
