Homeroom Fund

A high-school led Venture Capital Fund investing in tomorrow, guided by today’s youth.

Early Stage

Homeroom Fund invests in startups in early and seed stages. This includes pre-seed, seed, and series A. We look for demonstrable traction, either a prototype or full product, and product-market fit if possible. 


We are industry agnostic, however, Homeroom Fund prefers to stay away from Medical technology and biological life sciences. We focus on the broader technology industry with business models like business to business to consumer, retail, consumer packaged goods, and more.


Homeroom Fund is entirely led by students in high school or recent graduates. We’ve learned that the ambition and willingness to learn that youth have provides us with a unique perspective when talking to founders, assessing startups, and understanding the technology behind them.
