We’re different.

We’re looking for extraordinary founders who want a true partner to help take their startups to the next level and beyond.

Founders, operators, investors

A team of builders with a deep understanding of what makes a company successful and scalable.

Exclusive studio leverage

Our relationship with the 25madison studio gives us ongoing operating experience, flexing a muscle that most investors let atrophy.

Supercharged partnerships

We've got key distribution partners to reduce execution risk.

Industry Expertise

We’re generalists, but we focus on SaaS, fintech, healthcare, and consumer internet, the industries where we know we can add the most value..

Experienced through cycles

Seasoned group of investors who have been through multiple cycles and understand the white spaces that are poised for growth.


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

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