Galvanize Ventures is a seed stage venture capital fund; they invest across the country and believe exceptional teams can originate from any location. They approach venture from a unique vantage – community first.

The Galvanize Community is a startup ecosystem focused on collaboration, connection and education to facilitate and grow emerging companies. Through the power of their national campuses, and their growing network of gSchool graduates, they connect their portfolio of passionate digital entrepreneurs with their thriving Galvanize Community - building a group greater than the sum of its parts to spark disruptive ideas, support their investments, and help companies scale their teams and operations across geographies.

Galvanize Ventures is a team of entrepreneurs and operators, they appreciate what it means to start a business and scale, because they live the same day-to-day hurdles you do. They welcome the new kids, the hustlers, the risk-takers, the visionaries, the alpha geeks, the pioneers, the innovators, in short, the men and women whose ideas will reverberate well beyond the digital community. In terms of support, they can provide more than capital and introductions, by leveraging their campuses, their gSchool talent, and their built-in community they aim to empower entrepreneurs with the resources they need to have their best chance at success - even if they don’t invest.

They’re on the lookout for new companies, venture funds, and individuals who share their vision for an innovation community without borders. If you want to tell us about your company, inquire about partnerships, or simply learn more about Galvanize Ventures, drop us a line.
