what we do

Seed Haus provides pre-seed funding for startups. We work closely with thought leaders and subject matter experts to understand the big problems that need solved. Put simply, we build market-driven startups.
What we do

Seed Haus startups receive £18,000 from a suite of value-add tech investors. Seed Haus supports great teams with new ideas - we help build solutions to problems through an intensive accelerator programme, based in Edinburgh, where we get the company into the best possible shape. Our startups are with us for 6 months at the end of this time we do our own unique take on the demo day format.

Who we work with

Seed Haus seeks out people with great ideas: they might be engineers, designers or people with personal experience of something they want to change! We look for very early-stage ideas – not business plans – and we’re more interested in potential than business experience.


Our founding team have deep domain experience in the tech startup space. The Seed Haus founding team have: launched a startup and taken it all the way through to a trade exit, advised over 200 early stage founders, and hold advanced degrees in technical subjects.


We want to help build startups that are achieving traction and are working towards the right metrics. We help founders measure the right things and gain traction.


We think of our funding as more like financial aid: it’s so people who do need the money can pay their living expenses while they are building their startup at Seed Haus. We have partnered with some amazing software houses and professional service providers to offer our founders access to the best tools in the industry at zero cost.


The Seed Haus team have been in the startup space for a number of years and operate with the mission of helping our founders avoid the pitfalls we have seen many startups encounter.

We don’t take board seats or many of the other powers investors sometimes require. We offer lots of advice, but we can’t force anyone to take it. We recognise that it's your startup and we want to help you grow it!

why work with us

We have a fantastic relationship with thought leaders, subject matter experts, and leading corporates across the technology landscape.

Before each Seed Haus batch intake, we engage with these individuals and institutions to pinpoint key areas in need of novel tech solutions. We then identify and recruit the founders who are best placed to tackle these big problems. Seed Haus is one of the only accelerators in the world to operate on this model and it is key to building startups with real impact.

The founders that are accepted in to Seed Haus will join us in our headquarters in Edinburgh, UK.


We are delighted to have partnered with some of the biggest players in the tech space - as part of our offering, Seed Haus startups can access a range of Global mentorship, network access, and support with our partners - worth over £100,000.
