The Fund is a first-of-its-kind early stage venture fund created and fueled by a community of over 65 successful founders & operators who care deeply about supporting the next generation of NYC entrepreneurs. Together, we’ve pooled our capital, networks, and expertise to help grow New York’s tech ecosystem in a radical new way. (It’s an experiment, and we love it.)
We invest in New York-based technology companies at their earliest stages, usually pre-seed and seed rounds. We love teams who are moving the world forward, who care about people and our collective future, and who are driven with a deep sense of purpose to turn big ideas into tangible businesses.
At the end of the day, we’re here because we believe in New York City, we believe in its people & possibilities, and we believe in giving back to this community that helped us get where we are today.
