Company description

ff Venture Capital invests in startups that can be the low cost, disruptive player in their respective industry and can grow to over $100m in revenue.   Founded in 1999, we are one of the oldest and most active early-stage investors in New York.  ff has made over 100 investments in over 55 companies.  We typically invest $50-$300K initially, and will invest up to $1m in subsequent rounds. Among our most successful seed investments that have reached maturity are Cornerstone OnDemand (March 2011 IPO, ticker CSOD) and Quigo Technologies (sold to AOL for a reported $340m).


We offer portfolio acceleration, not just advice. 

We have eight full-time employees and 5,000 square feet of office space to help our portfolio companies.  We provide hands-on support through our in-house operating team, plus a proprietary network of outside mentors who work with portfolio companies on an as-needed basis.  Our finance team acts as your outsourced CFO.   We have built a library of best practices in building startups; see ffvc.com for details.  We particularly help companies in raising capital for subsequent rounds from top-tier late-stage investors. We also offer you discounted services from 20 (and growing) service providers specializing in the startup community, including providers of legal advice, development services, testing, infrastructure, public relations, and recruiting.
