We founded Greycroft in 2006 on three principles:
IVenture capital is a long term business.
It is common for us to hold positions for over ten years, and in that timeframe entrepreneurs need more than capital. We support and advise entrepreneurs, empowering them to build best-in-class businesses and execute on their vision.
IIEntrepreneurs are better off with a flexible investor.
We are flexible on ownership percentage, check size, and board seats. This allows us to bring together syndicates that are otherwise impossible when investors need 20% ownership.
IIIThe best VC firms are aligned with founders.
We have deliberately kept our venture funds small. This allows us to support any outcome—in fact, we have never voted against management on exit. We have a separate growth fund that writes larger checks from Series B through IPO when companies are at scale.
We are investing from two funds today: Greycroft V, a $256 million venture fund, and Greycroft Growth II, a $256 million growth-stage fund. The venture fund invests between $100,000 and $5 million in a first check, and will invest up to $10 million over multiple rounds. The growth fund starts at $10 million and will invest up to $35 million in a company. These two funds enable us to support entrepreneurs at any stage.
Our portfolio companies benefit from active, hands-on assistance from the partners. Greycroft’s partners work as a team, which means our CEOs have access to the collective rolodex and expertise of the entire partnership. We leverage an extensive network of media and technology connections to help you gain visibility, build strategic partnerships, and successfully exit.
The best way to get to know us is to speak with entrepreneurs who have chosen us as their partner.
