JUMP CONCLUSION

Quake Capital Partners focuses on early-stage ventures in Seed and Pre-Seed rounds, emphasizing tech sectors. They invest globally, including the U.S., U.K., and Israel, and collaborate with multiple investors. Their interests include emerging technologies.

Good Beauty Funder Fit but they avoid most consumer packaged goods but innovative beauty brands around sustainability and subscription boxes where data, AI or tech can be applied could make a move.
