We Invest Across Borders and Industries

We back entrepreneurs, at the earliest possible stage, who are using software & IT to transform global industries. There are Villagers in Silicon Valley, London, Mexico City, Tel Aviv, and many other cities, working on startups in digital health, fintech, SaaS, consumer internet, and other categories. Are you extraordinarily talented working on a big idea? Let’s talk.

I believe leadership is a privilege and I work every day to become a better leader. I love sharing the lessons I've learned in my own journey, and look forward to doing so with entrepreneurs and technologists in the Village network.

Ken Chenault
I think Village's innovative structure as a seed fund will lead to many interesting teams securing their first round of funding, and will improve the quality and quantity of companies that connect with major venture firms for their series A rounds and beyond. Village has many great LPs supporting the fund, and I am happy to be one.
Reid Hoffman
Most entrepreneurs are – to one extent or another – flying blind. That can be exciting and exhilarating but also lead to avoidable crashes. Village aims to help a new generation of entrepreneurs overcome challenges that no degree or training program can fully prepare them for.
Mike Bloomberg
I love being an entrepreneur and I love supporting fellow entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship is the backbone of our country, and especially as a woman, I’m grateful for the opportunities. I’m excited to be part of Village.
