Behind most startup founders is an early-stage investor who saw their potential, nurtured their ambition, and backed their ideas. These are not just check-writers but shrewd risk-takers, enthusiastic collaborators, and trend forecasters.

The end of a record bull run in tech rebooted the startup landscape, and now early-stage investors are embracing the change. Founders have gone back to basics, staying lean and mean from the start and harnessing tailwinds of the artificial intelligence boom.

“We are going to see some incredible and efficient startups emerge from this cycle, and there is no better place to invest than at inception,” says Ed Sim, founder and general partner of Boldstart Ventures and our top-ranked investor for a second year.

Now in its fourth year, the Seed 100 list celebrates these figures — the kingmakers who provide the vital first push startups need to become industry titans. This list is compiled using data analysis supplied by Termina, a software platform spun out of Tribe Capital. Read the full methodology behind the list.
