Bow Capital is an early-stage venture capital fund founded in 2016 in partnership with the University of California, to bridge the worlds of academia, business, and entertainment. We strongly believe the University of California is a source of incredible investment opportunities, world-class experts; an amazing customer, partner, and more.
Our target stages for investments are Series A and B companies that have established product-market fit and can share data-based evidence demonstrating the scalability of their business model. For some UC entrepreneurs, our investment stage may be a bit later than the current stage of the company. We encourage UC founders to check out Arrow Capital, our student-led pre-seed investment fund (see more below).
We seek to work alongside anyone who would like to share in our mission: students, researchers, faculty, administrators, and anyone focused on supporting UC entrepreneurs and the UC ecosystem. This page is a place for anyone from the UC to learn about us and what we do.
