Ludlow Ventures

We believe in VC without ego.

We prefer to talk straight and get the job done, ignoring the puffery and posturing often found in traditional VC firms. We invest in hard-working people from across the globe who get results and create value with what they do and the things they make. We fund the dreams of serial entrepreneurs and startups, turning ideas into companies and established ventures into industry leaders.
