The Fund is Now Everywhere
With a new $25M fund and global perspective, we are evolving our brand to match our investing lens.
There’s a concept in physics, Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, that states that you can’t know precisely the exact position and speed of a particle. The same might be said of both of us who have, for the last five years, traded office chairs for window seats on airplanes bound for EVERYWHERE. What started as a modest, New York-focused side project, pooling founder and operator capital, has turned into a global operation with over $50 million deployed into over 250 portfolio companies.
While New York was our starting point, we quickly felt the pull of founder communities elsewhere — London, LA, Denver, Chicago, Austin, and Sydney where the concept of The Fund really seemed to resonate. So in 2020, we left the comfort of NYC to build a global firm rooted in our belief that world-changing companies are being built everywhere. We wish we could say that it was easy, but expansion posed several challenges. We had many of the same setbacks and scaling issues as some of our startups do. In fact, we learned that building a micro-fund has more in common with starting a company than being an investor at an established fund. But what kept us singularly focused on this global vision was the distinct pull we were feeling from founders - everywhere.
While we started local, we are officially going global, meeting founders wherever they are. While we are still a fund made up of founders and operators, we are evolving our brand to reflect our ambitions to someday be investing EVERYWHERE.
And that’s why we’re rolling out Everywhere Ventures, leaning into our global footprint and celebrating our new $25M fund that will invest globally at pre-seed, around the world. The Fund has been a labor of love over the past five years and none of it is going away; rather, we’re doubling down on our community and taking it outside the lines we’d created for ourselves. We couldn’t be more excited to continue this journey with The Fund family.
