The goal of the Pre-seed Fund Capitalization Program (PFCP) is to increase the availability of professionally managed capital and associated services to accelerate the growth of early-stage Ohio technology companies. The Pre-Seed Fund provides loans to capitalize for-profit and nonprofit funds that have attracted the support of other non-state investors. Funds capitalized by the program are expected to target investments to pre-seed stage technology-based businesses.
