The first two years of a startup's life are tough. To survive and thrive, you want hands-on, head down, get 'er done investors and advisors on your side.
That's what makes C2V different -- we don't just invest, we get involved.
Need help with your go-to-market plan? We can do that. Trying to sort out ideal board composition, or develop partnerships? Been there, know someone.
Our current portfolio includes 14 direct investments and a number of partnerships with other investment firms, including many of NYC's leading angels.
Once you're a part of C2V, everyone and everything we know is available to you, because we know what it takes to grow a vision into reality.
