BOLDstart Ventures

We’re thematic investors in technology startups based in New York City with over 30 years of combined venture experience, focused on enterprise.

We prefer to be the first institutional investor in a company, helping product-driven engineering teams build market leading technology companies.

Boldstart is purpose-built to help founders realize product market fit and then raise series A financing; we call it "nail it, then scale it".

Our average [first] investment ranges from $400 to $750k where we both lead and participate. We are also life-cycle investors and reserve significant capital for follow-on investments in existing portfolio companies.
