Fortify Ventures

Fortify Ventures is comprised of experienced and energized founders that are dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs through capital, mentorship and community. Prior to founding Fortify Ventures, our team co-founded over a dozen companies and we have been investing as Angels for over fifteen years.

Over 30 investments have been made by Fortify Ventures since the Summer of 2011. We will continue to invest in accelerated startups as well as invest directly in companies that do not participate in our accelerator program

The Fortify Ventures Accelerator Program offers startups and their founders the opportunity to work closely with mentors and entrepreneurs who have been there and done it before. The Program is designed to support technology startups that are poised for growth.
