About this Program
We focus on investing in pre-seed and seed stage founders. Our bread-and-butter is investing in and supporting excellent founders who may just have an idea and a bare-bones MVP. We are sector-agnostic / generalists - we've done investments in all areas from BtoC to BtoB.
Founded by entrepreneurs The Refiners is a San Francisco-based Seed Fund Program devoted to helping world-class entrepreneurs thrive in the bountiful yet complicated environment of Silicon Valley. We are passionate about the needs of international startups, and believe they are different enough to warrant a program specifically for them. Over a three-month period, startups usually receive funding, networking and mentorship opportunities in Silicon Valley.
