the world has changed

We work, play, communicate, invest, and bank differently. And these changes are fast moving.

Level Field Capital strives to be not only part of, but an agent of this change. With our second Special Purpose Acquisition Corporation (or “SPAC”), LF Capital Acquisition Corp. II (NASDAQ: LFACU), our goal is to enable and empower disruptors in the areas of Digital Assets, Fintech, Technology, and Consumer. By simplifying the process for accessing public markets, we believe our operating and investing experience and value-creation strategy will allow visionaries to go public faster, serve broader markets, and accelerate their growth.

Our Companies

LF Capital Acquisition Corp. II, our second SPAC, raised $258,750,000 in gross proceeds in its IPO, which closed on November 19, 2021. LF Capital Acquisition Corp. II seeks to merge with a business which is at the forefront of its industry and which, by deploying technologies and innovations in groundbreaking ways, is meaningfully transformative.
Leveraging our team’s investment proficiency, operational knowledge and SPAC process acumen, as well as our broad network of contacts and corporate relationships, LF Acquisition Corp., our first SPAC, successfully brought Landsea (NASDAQ: LSEA), a high-quality, fast-growing homebuilder, to market, closing a successful de-SPAC transaction on January 7, 2021. We intend to use the experience gained from our first SPAC to accelerate LF Capital Acquisition Corp. II’s target’s path to the public markets.

We’ve Done this before

Experience
Matters.
