Company description

Originate draws from the best characteristics of the venture investing ecosystem to synthesize a new investment model we call Value Added Venture. Where does the “Value Added” come into play? We offer our portfolio companies more than simply financial capital and good advice. We add value with our expert team of human capital in-house, providing our companies resources for soup-to-nuts engineering development, strategic business direction, and design and brand implementation. We take a completely hands-on role in building and launching new companies, working alongside our startups as true partners in developing their products and ensuring their teams and processes are fully self-sustainable for long-term growth.

Our model is designed to reduce the inherent risk of launching a startup: Our team is seasoned in the entrepreneurial space, having developed and launched a wide range of successful companies, and by partnering with our portfolio companies to internally engineer their products, we all but remove the technical risk endemic to hi-tech startups. We work with early-stage ventures as well as more established companies that are positioned for explosive growth. Generally, we focus on innovative products and technologies within the mobile and web spaces, and we also work with turnaround companies that have a great product but need strategic restructuring or direction. In addition, through our EIR Program, we have no shortage of internal innovation -- and in building out internal launches, this program enables us to fine-tune our mentoring practice, and learn how to refine our partnerships with our external startups.
