DFV focuses on strategic investments in seed, early and growth stage digital media companies.
What sets us apart from traditional venture capital firms? To put it simply, it’s our platform. As the venture capital arm of a $1.4 billion media company (Digital First Media manages Media News Group and 21st Century Media), we look for companies who can leverage our broad platform to validate their products and accelerate their growth. The potential is huge thanks to our 890 digital and print properties, our tremendous content creation capabilities and our extensive customer relationships (more details on that below).
We also bring to bear all the connections that come with being the second largest print media company in the country, including access to senior management, product experts, mentors, customer referrals and more.
