Description
  • Union Square Ventures is an early stage venture capital firm based in New York City. We invest in young companies that use information technology in innovative ways to create high growth business opportunities in the Media, Marketing, Financial Services, Telecommunications, and Healthcare industries. Our venture capital firm was conceived as a place where a small number of very experienced investment professionals, working collaboratively from a single office, could build a portfolio of promising startup companies and then put our experience and our networks to work to help those companies build valuable businesses. Over the past 17 years, we have been directly involved in the development of 40 companies and have, through our prior firms, participated in the launch of over 120 companies. That experience has convinced us that we can deliver the highest returns to our investors by doing the work of venture capital ourselves, from sourcing investments, through due diligence and supporting our portfolio companies, to ultimately exiting the investments. For an entrepreneur looking for venture capital, this means that you will be dealing with a principal of the firm from day one. If we chose to invest our time in your business, you can be sure that we are serious about investing our capital as well. As a portfolio company, you will be supported by a partner who has been directly involved with your company since the initial investment consideration. We will, as a result, be able to quickly identify opportunities to contribute to the development of your company whether you need to round out your management team, connect with a potential customer, or find a strategic partner. Our ongoing, direct involvement will also enable you to react quickly to financing, acquisition, or exit opportunities.
