Eniac Ventures

Eniac Ventures is the first independent seed stage venture firm investing exclusively in mobile technologies. Eniac Ventures was founded in 2009 on the belief that the greatest technological catalyst of our time is the proliferation of Internet-enabled devices providing constant connectivity to the majority of the world population. Eniac Ventures is named after the world’s first computer developed at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Engineering, where the four general partners met in 1996.

We are serial entrepreneurs and operators with over 50 years of combined experience in the mobile software space. We have advised and invested in 80+ mobile software startups. Most importantly, we are building our own companies as startup founders enabling a much deeper partnership with our portfolio companies.

Investment Profile:

We invest $200k to $300k in seed stage startups. We prefer companies have some market data, even if very limited. From our experience, a technical co-founder is ideal, along with a designer for consumer centric companies, and a business lead especially for enterprise focused companies. Eniac is 100% focused on mobile. Specific targeted sectors within mobile include, but are not limited, to the following: • Big Data • Cloud computing • Commerce • Social • Gaming • AdTech • Enterprise
