Founded in 1999, Comcast Ventures, originally known as Comcast Interactive Capital, was formed during the acquisition of NBCUniversal by Comcast. A combination of Comcast Interactive Capital and the NBC Universal Peacock Equity Fund, Comcast Ventures typically invests between $2 million and $15 million in promising businesses at any point in their development, from seed through late stage.
The firm prefers to invest in the US and Canada, with a particular focus on New York.
Comcast Ventures has also formed the Catalyst Fund (headed by William Crowder), which is an early stage investor in minority-led tech companies.
