WGI Group provides early stage capital to internet entrepreneurs
We are a group of experienced internet entrepreneurs. We have had some success building our own companies, so we decided to form an investment group and help fund other entrepreneurs. Our most notable investment was in Right Media, which was acquired by
Yahoo! in 2007
. Our investments are managed by Michael Walrath
, Noah Goodhart
and Jonah Goodhart
What we are seeking
We are seeking to partner with passionate entrepreneurs who are not afraid to dream up big industry-changing ideas, yet who understand all the small steps and day-to-day execution that is required to implement a strategic concept. We like small teams that combine superior in-house technical talent with strong business acumen.
What we offer
We generally make seed or early stage investments up to $500,000. Yet, funding is only a small part of the value we can provide. As entrepreneurs ourselves, we assist our portfolio companies by drawing from our own experiences in fundraising, hiring, scaling infrastructure, marketing and the many other facets of high-growth technology startups. We often co-invest with other investment groups including several Sand Hill Road venture capitalists, as well as top angel groups.
We have invested in over 13 companies since 2007. Our portfolio companies are based in numerous cities including
New York, Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, and Chicago.
Most of our companies are in stealth mode and we will update our list of portfolio companies at the appropriate time.
If you are interested in having our team review your project for possible funding, please feel free to email us a presentation (maximum 15 slides) detailing your idea, team, technology, and execution plan. Please indicate how much funding you are seeking, and how you plan to use the funds. We like seeing screenshots, and get even more excited when we see online demos. We like proposals to be straight-forward and to the point.
