ff Venture Capital
Founded in 1999, ff Venture Capital is an institutional venture capital that invests in seed and early stage companies. They not only invest in early stage companies but also offer accelerator services – hands-on support through their in-house operating team, plus a proprietary network of outside executives who work with portfolio companies on an as-needed basis. This is common in growth equity investing, but much less common in early-stage investing. The fund also reserves capital to make follow-on investments in their portfolio companies as they grow.
Headquartered in New York, they invest across the US, Canada, Europe and Asia.
