Enterprise SaaS seed fund

On September 10, 2019, Work Life Ventures announced its Enterprise SaaS seed fund with $5 million in capital to invest in enterprise software companies. Worklife Ventures will use the funds to make investments of up to $150,000 in funding to each seed-stage company it supports. The founder of Work Life Ventures, Brianne Kimmel, made the following statement regarding the inspiration behind raising the companies first venture fund:

You start by advising, then you start with very small angel checks,” Kimmel explains. “I reached this inflection point and it felt like a great moment to raise my own fund. I had friends like Ryan Hoover, who started Weekend Fund focused on consumer, and Alexia is one of my friends as well and I saw what she was doing with Dream Machine, which is also consumer. It felt like it was the right time to come out with a SaaS-focused fund.
