Benefit to Startup
An opportunity where Tech Council Ventures’ network can contribute to the entrepreneur’s success
$500K to $3M
We invest in the most promising early-stage, rapid-growth technology companies in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Portfolio companies benefit from the Fund’s affiliation with one of the nation’s largest and most active technology councils for introductions to customers, recruits, resellers and distributors, Board directors, investors and quality service providers.
The Fund typically initially invests $500,000 to $3M, with up to $4-5M to support the company’s growth. The general partners are active investors, typically (but not always) a Board Director and lead investor.
Tech Council Ventures Funds
The firm manages $130 million across two comparably focused early-stage venture funds. The Fund was created by the NJ Tech Council, now known as TechUnited:NJ, to provide expansion capital to the region’s rapid growth entrepreneurs and capitalize on the fertile ecosystem.
Portfolio companies benefit from several industry and domain experts. TechUnited:NJ touches 30,000 companies in the Mid-Atlantic region, with six major vertical Advisory Boards comprising CXOs with world class expertise. In addition, more than 200 highly accomplished corporate executives, successful entrepreneurs, and industry-leading institutions comprise the Fund’s investor base. The Tech Council Ventures team has success and experience building startups into companies that transform industries.
The power of networked capital encompasses the valuable resources gained through Tech Council Ventures’ wide range of professional and social connections. Benefits include access to opportunities, information sharing, support system, knowledge expansion, increased visibility, referrals and recommendations, access to resources, collaboration opportunities, professional development, and business growth.
For those who are defining the path ahead in New Jersey and beyond, TechUnited:NJ is an empowering force for all innovators, disruptors and entrepreneurs achieving this by uniting our community to embolden the “what ifs” so that we accelerate opportunity, propel ideas into action, to build a better future for all.
