There's a reason world-class founders choose us.

We're a different type of venture firm. We wake up every morning and ask ourselves how we can help our portfolio companies move the needle. From in-the-weeds to twenty thousand feet, we are partners at every level. But don't just take our word for it...
Dean Glas
Co-Founder & CEO / SellX
The Ground Up team aren't just investors, they are friends and mentors who have helped us so much and are always there when we need them.
Yael Shemer
Co-Founder & CMO / Tulu
Ground Up is always our first call whenever we need advice. They're always available and they hustle for us like they're on the founding team. Any founder would be lucky to have them!
Charlie Javice
Co-Founder & CEO / Frank
I've known Cory and David since college and couldn't think of better people to work with. They've opened countless doors for me and have delivered beyond my wildest expectations.
Omri Stern
Co-Founder & CEO / Jones
I’ve always thought about Ground Up as an extension of our team. In every area— fundraising, hiring, marketing, strategy — they bring their A-game with a level of candor, excitement, and personality that is often hard to find in seed funds.
Chen Konfino
Co-Founder & CEO / Younity
The partners at Ground Up are the ultimate investors as they understood our vision and lent us a great deal of credibility, which helped accelerate our progress significantly. They continue to be both supportive and active, and we are grateful to have them
Kristen Anderson
Co-Founder & CEO / Catch
We chose Ground Up because they seemed like the ones most willing to hustle for us and that's been true! They punch far above their weight in terms of going out of their way to get us access to resources, partners, and introductions.
Michael Sachse
CEO / Dandelion
In addition to being thoughtful and supportive throughout, they have a surprisingly large network that they've put us in touch with. They just seem to know everybody, and they're eager to work for their portfolios. We're lucky to have them as part of the team!
Emily Hochman
Co-Founder & CEO / Wellory
The Ground Up team is amazing to work with! They care deeply about our product, help to boost our network, and quickly became a part of the team. It's wonderful to know they are just a text away whenever I need them.
