SBXi is jointly backed by Accel, Polaris Partners, GETTYLAB, General Catalyst, Pillar, Danaher, Underscore VC and Glasswing Ventures — we write $10K-$100K checks on SAFEs and $100K-$1M checks when there’s a qualifying term-sheet we can match.
We invest exclusively in founders who graduated from MIT — to help you build the next wave of generational companies only MIT could spark.
Our fund is open to graduates of any MIT degree program.
Companies that are raising a priced round and have a lead investor are eligible to be evaluated for $100K-$1M checks matching the same terms as their lead investor. Companies that are not raising a priced round are eligible to be evaluated for $10K-$100K checks on SAFE notes.
SAFE notes can be evaluated in as little as 7 days. For priced rounds, after we meet you, we conduct diligence and coordinate a time for you to pitch the SBXi sponsors. After the pitch, we will return a timely investment decision. On average, this process takes a couple of weeks.
For Seed or Series A rounds, if you are in the process of negotiating a term sheet, feel free to reach out to us so that we can begin to evaluate it. For pre-seed rounds, it is never too early to speak with us. We are eager to hear about your idea from the earliest stages and see how we can support your journey.
Pitches are shared only with the eight sponsoring funds. If you prefer to password-protect your pitch, feel free to do so, and we will share the password with the voting partners.
