LEADERSHIP PREVAILS. Moonshots Capital is a seed-stage venture capital firm that invests in extraordinary leadership. Great leaders are hard to come by. We believe the best ones are military-trained or trial-by-fire entrepreneurs who have the ability to motivate others to action, inspire trust, and plan heuristically. We invest with conviction when those attributes are present. We have collectively founded and operated 14 companies, and have personally invested in more than 85 ventures.
