Moai Capital is a Silicon Valley seed investor and incubator, founded by Brian Jacobs, who previously co-founded Emergence Capital and help build it over 15 years. He has deep experience helping dozens of startup companies grow into leaders of their industries.
The great Moai statues of Easter Island were hand carved and erected by the Rapa Nui people who were totally isolated, thousands of miles from any other humans. Like many early human cultures, they fashioned their most important creations in stone. Over centuries, they evolved their technology enabling them to cut massive figures and transport them miles across the island.
Stone carving is a slow and laborious process. Each creation requires meticulous upfront planning, intense passion and exhausting physical and mental effort. While some incubators diversify their attention across large simultaneous cohorts, Moai Capital understands each startup is ultimately willed into being by founder who is focused, passionate, determined and frankly just won’t quit. We help founders carve their blank slate.
Moai Capital can invest in a variety of categories with a focus on consumer products and services, the internet of things and B2B cloud services. We also invest in startups who are innovating to help increase employment for autistic adults. Moai is an autism friendly workplace.
