Conviction underpins our approach to venture capital. We've learned that a little good fortune can go a long way, and that a smaller number of deep, meaningful connections is more powerful than a broad but shallow network--success requires a blend of talent and timing.
We are primarily focused on deeptech entrepreneurs focused on bringing forth new market defining ventures that impact infrastructure, hardware, manufacturing, automation, robotics, computer vision and AI categories. Entrepreneurs must be 2ndGen founders or have academic research experience from an R1 accredited institutions.

Washington Research Foundation (WRF) was founded in 1981 to help Washington State research institutions capture value from emerging technologies through intellectual property management and start-up investment activities. WRF is an independent private foundation whose operational revenue comes from retained funds from licensing and investing activities. WRF Capital manages Washington Research Foundation's (WRF) seed venture fund by creating and investing primarily in technology-based start-up companies that have strong ties to the University of Washington and other non-profit research institutions in Washington State. WRF Capital invests in two types of companies: (1) WRF founded companies in which WRF Capital and an entrepreneur create a business concept and start a company and (2) Non-WRF founded companies in which WRF Capital invests in a company opportunity presented by an entrepreneur. In both cases, WRF Capital actively seeks co-investors, investing up to $2 million in the firm's portfolio companies with proceeds from investments used to make financial gifts to Washington State research institutions. WRF invests only in companies located in Washington State with ties to not-for-profit research insitutions. The industry focus includes IT, Life Sciences, and Physical Sciences. In addition to providing seed capital through WRF Capital, the WRF leases office space to technology-based start-ups through the WRF Venture Center. The WRF Venture Center offers entrepreneurs short-term, flexible office facilities and business support in a desirable location on Lake Union, midway between the University District and downtown Seattle.
