Social Starts

Social Starts is a $60M+ venture capital partnership that invests in the moment-of-inception and Series A financing rounds of companies that leverage social and mobile technologies to drive generational changes in consumer and business behavior. We call this The Social Construct and believe it represents an innovation and disruption opportunity on par with the Industrial Revolution.

We invest in 4 primary areas: work platforms, Internet of Things software, content and commerce. Across these areas we focus on analytics, data security and health care technology.

Our team has developed dominant media, research and tech companies in the 3 modern tech revolutions – PC, Internet and Social. Our portfolio companies benefit from the resulting rich perspective and world-class connections, a mutually supportive community of more than 170 fellow startups, and support from our LPs, who include leading figures in software development, marketing and media from 3 continents.
