We started Underscore VC with a listening tour, on a mission to find a better way to empower you to build an enduring company and support your full potential as an entrepreneur.
What we learned:
Capital is a necessary commodity.
Entrepreneurs invest their life and it’s priceless.
Time is your scarcest resource.
Talent is your most valuable asset.
It takes a community to build a great company.
We want to underscore you from the earliest stage of your venture. We’d be proud to be the first capital in and invest in you from Seed-to-A and beyond. We foremost seek to invest in bold, brave entrepreneurs who understand problems deeply, see opportunities, challenge the status quo and think big.
Our investment focus is around Trusted Cloud Intelligence, based on over a decade of successfully co-creating billions of dollars of value investing in this area. We invest in the U.S. and are naturally biased to the greater Boston region, but because our focus is always on you, we will go to wherever you are, whenever we believe we and our community can serve your purpose.
We believe that capital is only as good as the people behind it. When we invest, we will surround you with a Core community that’s aligned and integrated with your mission.
We’ve brought our community together with over $200 million in capital behind a Seed-to-A venture fund backed by an outstanding group of Limited Partners representing over $45B of institutional capital and including some of the best children’s hospitals, leading academic institutions, and global foundations dedicated to advancing the well-being of our planet. Therefore, when we invest in you, we will make a double impact – both for your purpose and to change the world for good.
Our Belief: Together, we can change the world.
JOIN US, AS WE BUILD A BRIDGE TO THE FUTURE:
The virtuous cycle to change our world for good.
Together with Underscore, members of our community invest their time, expertise and capital in a way that’s truly aligned with your needs.
We help you pursue your passions, build great companies and make a meaningful difference.
As we learn best practice in both entrepreneurship and investing, we contribute those learnings back, thereby creating the next generation of entrepreneur-investors.
Core Partners earn shares out of our invested capital when they help build our companies. And when those companies generate returns, the General Partners also contribute to our foundation to enable future entrepreneurs.
