About Goodwater Capital

The mission of Goodwater Capital is to empower exceptional entrepreneurs everywhere to change the world for good.  We are 100% focused on consumer tech, an area that we define simply as apps and services adopted directly by consumers.  Goodwater is founded on the belief that we are experiencing an explosion of new consumer-driven opportunities in digital utilities that help everyday people live better lives.  We are excited to see great entrepreneurs pioneering powerful new platforms to serve consumers across a broad range of large markets including housing, health care, food, financial services, transportation, education, and entertainment.

Goodwater invests solely in consumer tech companies across early and growth stages.  Our chief investment criteria is simple -- a product or service that customers LOVE.  Goodwater's founders were previously senior partners at companies including Facebook, Twitter, Kakao, Chegg, Coupang, Weee!, Monzo, Zumper, Stash, Toss, musically/TikTok, and Spotify.  We bring that collective experience and understanding to Goodwater, fully focused on empowering the next generation of world-changing entrepreneurs in consumer technology.
