BBS Investors

For 40 years, America’s Seed Fund powered by NSF has helped startups and small businesses transform their ideas into marketable products and services. We focus on high-risk, high-impact technologies — those that show promise but whose success hasn’t yet been validated — and each year, we award $200 million in funding to entrepreneurs across the country. Our goals are to foster innovation and help create businesses and jobs in the United States, and companies seed funded by our program have since gone on to tremendous success.

Refactor Capital is an early-stage venture capital firm that invests in founders tackling problems in hard but not impossible areas such as applied biology, health, food & beverage, wellness, aerospace, transportation, and more.
