About Us

For over 45 years, the founders and executives at Entrepreneur® have asked, “How can we harness our experience and resources to create a differentiated venture firm?” This firm would need to combine the dependability of a traditional firm, the autonomy of an established VC, and a founder’s know-how. Additionally, it would require access to Entrepreneur®’s network, products, global reputation, and the freedom to invest directly.

We are excited to introduce Entrepreneur Ventures, an independent venture capital firm committed to investing in and supporting entrepreneurs.

We devote energy to engaging with and nurturing entrepreneurs in the earliest stages of company building.

Our operating partners, team, and network of advisors collaborate to provide comprehensive support to startups right from the beginning. EV also assists startups in connecting with Entrepreneur’s network, offering exclusive access to our extensive reach, which includes 20 million unique website visitors, 3.6 million readers, and 16 million social followers, to support early traction and growth.

Entrepreneurship is part of our DNA, and we recognize that a vital part of a startup’s journey often involves securing capital. However, it also demands the right mindset, assembling the right team, developing the right product, and selecting the right partners.

Although obtaining capital has become more accessible, the venture aspect of VC remains challenging. Establishing a high-growth company that endures through generations and fosters widespread, equitable change is insanely hard.

We hope your relationship with us is one of the best parts of the whole journey.
