Inner Loop Capital is a Pre-Seed and Seed Venture Capital Firm based in the Washington, D.C. Region

Inner Loop’s mission is to be the first-choice seed fund for Founders building companies with Power Law Potential in the greater Washington, D.C. region

Inner Loop Capital was Founded on Three Principles:

Founder-First

We aim to center founders in all of our work. We want to ensure that all aspects of working with Inner Loop — from our first conversation through diligence, deal terms, advice and governance — are optimally structured to enable founders to achieve their goals, build great teams and companies, and create enduring value.

Power Law Potential

We stay focused on Power Law Investing. We know that only Power Law outcomes can compensate Limited Partners for risking their capital and rationalize the personal risks of being a founder. It is impossible to know if a start-up will achieve a massive return. But if founders launch seeking a 3-5x return, they are unlikely to successfully pivot to a Power Law return.

Washington, D.C. Region

We believe that Founder-First, Power Law investing has helped make Silicon Valley the premier start-up ecosystem in the world. Since 2010, similar start-up ecosystems have grown in many major metros, most notably in New York City. The Washington, D.C. region is the fourth-largest metro economy in the country. Inner Loop Capital believes it too can become a major start-up ecosystem practicing these principles.

Justin Label is the Managing Director of Inner Loop Capital.

Justin has been working in venture capital since 1999. From 2001 to 2011, Justin was an investor at Bessemer Venture Partners in Silicon Valley, with a focus on Cyber Security and Infrastructure Software.

In 2014, Justin moved with his family to Baltimore, Maryland and began making angel investments as “Inner Loop Capital”, primarily in cybersecurity.

Justin launched the first Inner Loop Capital fund with capital from outside limited partners as an AngelList fund in 2019. The current Inner Loop fund is structured as a traditional, stand-alone venture capital fund.

Justin is inspired by entrepreneurs and honored to partner with them at the seed stage, for a journey that might easily last a decade or longer.

Justin lives north of Baltimore with his wife and three children.
