What We Do

Rubicon Venture Capital is an early stage VC fund with offices in San Francisco and New York City focused on backing consumer and enterprise technology companies in the internet, software and connected hardware verticals at Late Seed, Series A and B stages. We are backed by a diverse set of value added LP investors including accredited angels, family offices, and institutional LPs located worldwide. We enable our LPs to co-invest with our fund via our sidecar funds at Seed, A and B financings. We continue to invest in our portfolio companies all the way to exit via our sidecar funds providing our LPs with access to select late stage investment opportunities.

A Completely New Venture Capital Model

We’ve combined the best aspects of a small flexible venture fund with the power of a top tier angel network and the deep resources of large corporate and institutional investors.

Each time our fund invests in a company, our investors may choose to allocate additional personal funds to the opportunity if they believe they can add real value to the company. For investors this means unique access to difficult-to-get-into deals, more control and better returns. For founders, this means direct access to successful entrepreneurs-turned-investors as well as large corporates and institutions that can support their business from seed through IPO.

Our Investment Focus

Our focus tends to be on companies in North America, the UK and Northern Europe, where we have developed extensive VC and business networks that can help our portfolio companies succeed.

The bulk of our funds are focused in Series A and B financing rounds. We are also active in seed rounds, though we require that a startup has raised a minimum of $500k USD of outside funding before we invest. Our unique fund plus sidecar model enables our fund and our investors to participate in growth, secondary and late-stage rounds right up to acquisition or IPO.

We’re All In This Together!

We strive to deliver real value through our extensive global network of institutional limited partners, corporates, angels and advisors. Got challenges? We’ve got seasoned entrepreneurs and industry leaders ready to go to bat for you. Meet our team here.

Crossing The Rubicon

In the centuries since Julius Caesar led a Roman legion across the Rubicon River, “crossing the Rubicon” has become synonymous with irrevocably committing oneself to a bold and revolutionary course of action. At Rubicon we’re committed to revolutionizing venture capital.
