Betaworks makes seed-stage investments in this ecosystem. To them, seed investing means "first money in." Their typical investment size is $150,000-200,000. They always invest as part of a syndicate of angels and early stage venture capital firms. They prefer investments to be early stage, heavily technology focused, and have a working (public or private) prototype.
