Expansion Venture Capital

Expansion Venture Capital, is a venture capital firm focused in early and growth stage companies. Located in New York City, EVC was founded by brothers, Joseph and Ryan Melohn.

EVC’s team is comprised of entrepreneurs. Fifteen years of combined experience has enabled EVC to help build great companies across the US. As entrepreneurs, “we have been in their shoes and speak the same language”.

We pride ourselves on being available for our teams of entrepreneurs 24/7. We work side by side with them, providing intellectual capital and assistance in any way we can. From mentorship to business development, raising capital, getting the right press, are some of the ways “we work for you”. When one of our founders have a question we want to be the first place they turn. Their success is our success!

We are founder friendly! “Entrepreneurs, not VCs, build great companies”
