JUMP CONCLUSION

Redbud VC focuses on early-stage tech companies but their investments span diverse sectors, including health care, real estate, and consumer goods, with significant activity in New York, California, and Missouri. Redbud VC typically collaborates with other investors, targeting U.S.-based startups with innovative tech solutions in software, FinTech, or health tech that disrupt traditional industries.

A casual Beauty Funder Fit, but worth a shot for beauty brands that intersect with health and tech, founded by resilient founders whose solution is based on first principles.
