About MonsoonFund

MonsoonFund Was Created by the People Behind Startup Tucson

Startup Tucson is a non-profit organization based out of Tucson, Arizona that works to grow a strong, vibrant startup ecosystem of companies, entrepreneurs, and talent in Tucson. Inspired by the robust scenes in cities such as Silicon Valley, Boulder and Austin, we are helping to spur economic growth by organizing educational events like Hackathons, Startup Weekend events and Lean LaunchPad workshops, as well as networking events like Startup Drinks and Co-Founder Speed Dating. We at Startup Tucson witnessed an influx of founders seeking funding opportunities alongside our pursuits to bolster the entrepreneur community. While Kickstarter and the like offer a great, national approach to securing crowd-funding opportunities, the Tucson community was already engaging in localized crowd-funding among their projects and startup ventures. The easiest way to encourage and help facilitate these incredible funding rounds was to create a funding infrastructure that targeted this inspiring community. MonsoonFund is that infrastructure.

Why Tucson?

Through a collaboration of Startup Tucson and many others, Tucson has been recognized as a potential future hub of entrepreneurship by Entrepreneur Magazine. With cheap real estate prices, strong academic support from the local University of Arizona and vibrant southwestern culture, many business communities across the country make comparisons between Tucson and an early Austin, Texas.
