Investor Overview

In 2008, Elon Boms, with investors Karen Pritzker and Michael Vlock, helped build the seed investing industry with the introduction of LaunchCapital. At the time, the seed investment market was small and fragmented. So LaunchCapital was founded with a mission to help entrepreneurs gain quick access to seed capital and mentorship. Over the past decade, LaunchCapital is proud to have invested in over 200 companies that are reinventing industries across the nation. LaunchCapital is focused on entrepreneurs at the seed stage. With a permanent base of capital, the question for us isnt how you get to the next metric that VCs want to hear, its how you build a great business. LaunchCapital is backed by the Pritzker Vlock Family Office (PVFO). PVFO owns and manages a broad portfolio of public equities, consumer, biotech, industrial and medical equipment and technology businesses, several venture funds, and real estate.Karen Pritzker runs PVFO and is involved in numerous national philanthropic efforts individually and through her family foundation with emphasis on literacy, education, medicine, theatre and land preservation. She received a B.A. from Northwestern University.
