A new early-stage fund from Bobby Goodlatte & Josh Williams that invests real design expertise alongside seed capital.

A New Form of Seed Investing

Form Capital offers more than just a check. We offer design sprints with each of our seed investments. Our sprints cover everything from branding and pitch decks to packaging and product UX flows. All at zero cost to founders.

The Future is Built, Not Predicted

We partner with visionary founders who pull the future into the present.

Our job is to support founders, not to predict the future or thought-lead. So we've built our firm from the bottom-up to offer real, tangible support—not just advice & intros. Real output: design sprints & recruiting support.

Design Delivers Returns

Design has never been more important for startups. It's often what advantages startups over complacent incumbents.

The difference between a failed startup and a breakout success can be as simple as a core UX flow optimized for fewer taps. A packaging design that resonates. Even a pitch deck that helps raise the next round.

We invest in founders who value great design. And we support them with foundational design & recruiting resources. Not just because it's what we value—great design also drives returns.
