Are most seed stage VCs open to investing in two direct competitors?

No, very few will invest in a direct competitor, other than very early-stage investors like incubators and accelerators that do too many investments to be able to worry about conflicts.

But sometimes, you may not have the whole story.

Just ask a VC. “I see you invested in Competitor. Is that a conflict?” Be 100% direct, it will be appreciated.

You’ll get a direct answer.
