Detailed Description


Galvanize Ventures is a seed stage venture capital fund; we invest across the country and believe exceptional teams can originate from any location. We 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 our national campuses, and our growing network of gSchool graduates, we connect our portfolio of passionate digital entrepreneurs with our thriving Galvanize Community - building a group greater than the sum of its parts to spark disruptive ideas, support our investments, and help companies scale their teams and operations across geographies.

Galvanize Ventures is a team of entrepreneurs and operators, we appreciate what it means to start a business and scale, because we live the same day-to-day hurdles you do. We 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, we can provide more than capital and introductions, by leveraging our campuses, our gSchool talent, and our built-in community we aim to empower entrepreneurs with the resources they need to have their best chance at success - even if we don’t invest.

We’re on the lookout for new companies, venture funds, and individuals who share our 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.
