RiverPark Ventures is an early stage venture capital fund, founded by entrepreneurs to invest in entrepreneurs. We focus on high-growth, disruptive businesses with innovative products and services that have a proven business model in sectors where we believe the upside is enormous.
Additionally, as operators, we understand the challenges of building a business, and we work with our companies to add value by applying our insight from two decades of first-hand execution and investment experience along with a deep and wide network of relationships.
RiverPark Ventures is part of the RiverPark Funds group.
We look for businesses with innovative products and services in large markets that address significant customer needs. We like disruptive business models that eliminate intermediaries and shorten value chains. We favor marketplace opportunities-specifically, businesses that utilize existing infrastructure, excess capacity and, whenever possible, create recurring revenue streams. We prefer businesses that leverage a technology advantage and create a natural barrier to entry. We encourage a disciplined commitment to milestones and we appreciate capital efficient companies.
We focus on businesses that are still in the early stage but with a proven model and that are generating preliminary revenue. We believe this is the time when the risk/reward matrices converge.
