What does Pre Seed and Seed Investment mean?

The terms Pre-Seed and Seed are widely used to refer to stages of startup development and equivalently of investment. There is hardly an objective definition, and depending on the market, each fund may define it slightly differently. For us, Pre-Seed investment relates to the first institutional capital that comes in as an investment in a company that is at the early stages of its development. At Metavallon VC we combine this investment of initially € 200K with one-to-one support, a number of additional perks and connections to the market, to service providers and follow on investors. Seed investment is also initial capital but refers to a company founded by a team of experienced entrepreneurs that have already achieved some market traction with their product. At Metavallon VC we support those startups to scale with capital of initially € 400K, expert support, a number of additional perks and connections to the market, to service providers and follow-on investors.
