About this Program

The Mid-Hudson Valley's first member-managed seed capital fund.

Our Investment Focus

Launched in the fall of 2015, the Hudson Valley Startup Fund (HVSF) is the first managed seed capital fund in the Mid- Hudson region of New York State. HVSF brings together a seasoned group of local investors and entrepreneurs to support local, scalable startups in the critical early stage of development with capital, mentors and a valuable network of resources locally, nationally and internationally.

 If your company meets the following criteria, please apply for funding:

  • Hudson Valley-based business - we invest in local companies

  • Scalable business model - potential for significant growth

  • Addressable market - clear market demand for a solution to a problem

  • Right to win - unique technology or other strategic competitive advantage within the business

  • Path to exit - potential for realizing returns through acquisition, merger, etc.
