Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a venture capital fund?
Yup! Similar to a VC firm, Sweater pools investor money to invest into high-growth startups. Our SEC designation allows us to accept investment contributions from non-accredited investors (regular folks). Other than that, we invest into the same high-growth companies as our more exclusive contemporaries. We’re the VC fund for everyday investors.
