Cue Ball

Cue Ball is a Boston-based venture and early growth equity firm focused on recurring revenue platforms in business information services, digital media, and specialty consumer opportunities.

The firm is built on a human capital centric philosophy: the belief that enduring value creation is all about the people. The people in their partnership and investor membership base share a fundamental belief that their collective intelligence can yield value creation opportunities.

The partnership brings together operators with track records for leading companies in the consumer and media sectors. This experience includes running the largest information media company in the world and founding some Internet and consumer businesses. Cue Ball is further bolstered by a unique brain trust (The Cue Ball Collective) of 25 business leaders – all of whom are investors in their fund.
