Pioneer Square Labs
About Pioneer Square Labs
Pioneer Square Labs (PSL) is a premier startup studio, and early-stage venture capital fund focused on the next generation of technology companies in the Pacific Northwest.
PSL Studio develops ideas with exceptional entrepreneurs from scratch and validates or kills them. For the best ideas, we invest significant development work and capital to turn these ideas into venture-funded companies with rapid customer and market adoption. See a few examples here. Over the last six years, PSL has created almost 31 companies, with the vast majority going on to raise venture funding and scale. One of three PSL Studio companies is female-founded, and one out of three is BIPOC-founded. We are always looking for great people to found and lead our companies.
Pioneer Square Labs is a Startup Studio & Venture Capital Fund that partners with founders. PSL exists to build the next generation of world-changing companies, bringing together exceptional founders, big ideas, and investment capital.
We partner with Entrepreneurs-in-Residence (EIRs) to take ideas from 0 to pre-seed to your seed fundraise. Our team of designers, engineers, growth marketers, and recruiting to support you from validating an idea, to creating the MVP and gaining customer traction.
