Tell us about your company


Building companies in our studios and investing in early-stage businesses through Venture Fund I.

A team of builders

As founders ourselves, we have a deep understanding of what makes a company successful and scalable.
Our Team

Unique deal flow

We see over 1,000 companies a year.

We know what kinds of companies we’re looking for and the players in the space.

See the open spaces

We are constantly learning and better understanding white spaces poised for growth, which makes us uniquely suited to identify the best early-stage investment opportunities.


In the competitive early-stage space, this means we reach fact-based decisions quickly so we don’t lose out on deals.

Remaining operators

Our relationship with the studio gives us ongoing operating experience, flexing a muscle that most investors let atrophy.

Supercharge our investments

We do more than simply pick up the phone – we’re in it with our entrepreneurs every step of the way.

Work with us

Building businesses is in our DNA. We’re a small but mighty team of tinkerers, designers, geeks (the cool kind), operators, business moguls and everything in between. Wildly strategic, yet so deep into it that we’ve got the scars to prove it.

Whether it's with the 25madison Studio, 25madison Ventures, or 25m Health, we’re looking for great people who love their work, solving problems, and having fun. Jerks need not apply.
