Our Story

The 701 Fund was established in 2015 to serve
the growing capital needs for startups within the
Midwest. The fund and its investors seek to partner with
high-growth investment opportunities within the region.

The experienced leadership of the fund leverages its
network to quickly identify, evaluate, and de-risk viable opportunities.
As a North Dakota fund, we acknowledge the
legacy of entrepreneurship, integrity, and strong work
ethic in what we do and seek to invest in companies
with identical values.

 

701 was once the only area code for the state of ND.

 For us, it serves as a reminder to
embody those values ourselves and empower
like-minded innovators!
