Hi, We’re Earnest Capital

We make seed stage investments in bootstrappers, indie hackers, makers and real businesses. Read the FAQ.

We offer an innovative investment structure aligned with founders and businesses that want to accelerate now and ultimately become a profitable sustainable business. We never want you to need to raise another round of funding and you’ll never be forced to exit. Working with Earnest is about more than just capital. We provide a network of experienced founders who back our founders every step of the way.
