We invest in consumer tech with a focus on underserved markets
We focus on the advancement of women’s health, education, parenting, fintech, media and entertainment, and more.
We are business development experts and operators with over 30 years of experience. We source and execute premier revenue generating partnerships with Fortune 500 companies, influencers and strategic HNWI’s for entrepreneurs.
We’ve done everything from building out an all star advisory board, to raising international strategic capital, to bringing on the right ambassadors, to walking entrepreneurs straight into the key decision makers and executing those strategic growth partnerships.
Our goal is to help our founders scale not only at the seed stage, when high level business development partnerships can be massively transformative to reach series A, but also as they grow and go international, given our global background and reach.

The Values We Live By
1. The goal is to be valuable
At Muse Capital, we strive to be the most helpful investors on the cap table. We take it upon ourselves to be valuable partners to our founders, helping them through every stage of growth. As our partners always say “The goal is not to be successful. The goal is to be valuable. Once you’re valuable, instead of chasing success, it will attract itself to you.”
2. Diversity fuels outperformance
The data is clear: diverse teams outperform homogeneous teams. Diverse leadership generates more innovation and better business outcomes, and results in superior performance over the long-term. As diverse managers, it is our responsibility to shift the paradigm of high-potential women and multicultural founders from the exception to the norm.
3. Execution is everything
Having worked with startups for 30+ years from seed to IPO, our partners believe that ideas are a dime a dozen; execution is what sets apart the ones that make it from the ones that don’t. Having the right team both internally and externally is critical to success, from the right strategic investors, to partners who can create and execute game-changing opportunities to bring the vision to life.
4. Where profit meets purpose
At Muse Capital, heart matters. We invest at the intersection of where profit meets purpose. It is equally as important to us that the companies we fund produce returns as they scale, as it is that they move society forward. Our founding partners care on a personal and professional level about our portfolio companies, bringing heart to everything they do, keeping it at the core of Muse's ethos.
