Fifty Years

Fifty Years currently focus on synthetic biology and food tech but they don’t limit their investments to any specific verticals. Education, health, civic, community, energy, hardware, software, robotics - as long as there’s a chance to build a massive business while solving a big problem in the world, it’s exciting to them. They invest at the seed stage and often invest in a company’s first funding round and occasionally the second. Fifty Years is based in San Francisco.

More about Fifty Years


Being entrepreneurs themselves, Fifty Years found it nearly impossible to find savvy investors that both had the skills, knowledge, and experience to help them scale their business and fully support their mission. They decided to solve their own problem and founded Fifty Years.


How much do they invest?

They help their founders with everything from hiring, website design, introductions to other investors, culture building, sales strategy, and more.


How do they work?

The team behind Fifty Years are entrepreneurs themselves. From their experience running companies, they know what it means to be a good investor. First, they aim to never get in the way - they support their founders in running their companies the way they want to.


This makes a difference to them

They invest in companies that inspire. Specifically, they fund companies that, if successful, will be both massively profitable and make a serious dent in achieving one of the Sustainable Development Goals. They strongly prefer companies with an initial go-to-market strategy starting in North America or Europe.
