What We Do


Buttonwood is a software platform to help elite, late-stage startups raise new capital rounds through existing real-world relationships.

We let startups raise capital without needing a "lead" investor. Our process takes less time and gets better terms.


How It Works

Step 1

Entrepreneurs with proven businesses looking to raise Series B & C rounds ($20M+) apply to Buttonwood to support their financing effort.



Step 2

Buttonwood selects which entrepreneurs to partner with and then helps them curate diligence materials that address key questions upfront. No spin. We believe in honesty and transparency.

Step 3

Management, their existing investors and board members collectively decide which existing stakeholders will serve as the deal's "Sponsors."

Sponsors invite potential investors that they know & trust to review the deal on Buttonwood, and act as advocates to support investors' due diligence.



Step 4

After due diligence and discussions with Sponsors and management, potential investors can decide to participate in the round.

Investors can submit bids with (A) a company valuation and (B) the check size they're willing to invest. 

Step 5

Buttonwood and the company collect all of the bids and accept them from highest valuation to the lowest. The valuation attached to the last dollar accepted sets the round.

This is how IPOs are priced.
