One Way Ventures
Agritech Fintech Insights Logistics Marketing

Business Overview

One Way Ventures is on a mission to fund exceptional immigrant founders building high-impact global companies.

We invest in companies founded and co-founded by immigrants. Everyone on our investment team is an immigrant, so we understand the challenges of founding and scaling a company through this lense. We offer visa/legal support and references, as well as access to a network of industry experts and executives, many of whom are immigrants themselves.

We invest in immigrant-founded startups because we believe immigrant success is not priced into the market.

After 20 years of angel investing and three years as Director of Techstars Boston, One Way co-founder Semyon Dukach noticed a trend: immigrant-led companies repeatedly outperformed the rest of his portfolio. While immigrants only make up 13% of the U.S. population, they start 24% of high-tech startups, and founded or co-founded 55% of America’s billion-dollar startups.

We believe immigration naturally self-selects for the entrepreneurial-minded, and that the experience itself prepares founders for the parallel hardships that accompany entrepreneurship. Because of this, it is our thesis that immigrant founders have a competitive advantage when it comes to building impactful, globally reaching companies.

We love founders who: (1) have been shaped by their immigration experience (2) demonstrate a high degree of grit and resilience (3) have a track record of excellence in their previous endeavors (4) demonstrate credibility in the problems they’re tackling and (5) have a big vision
