XG Ventures

XG Ventures was founded by ex-Googlers, who were early hires in strategic roles at Google. This group is now dedicated to advising and investing in supremely talented early stage teams.

One of XG’s strengths is sharing their early experiences at Google, including how its unique culture shaped a dynamic and fun enterprise. The primary goal is to use their complementary expertise to help successfully guide the start-up teams to the next stage. XG’s core assets include operational and strategic expertise, mentorship, global networking contacts, and access to seed capital and beyond.

XG Ventures is focused primarily on the consumer internet, including the mobile, video, gaming, social media, and online media sectors.
