Alumni Ventures Group is a fast-growing venture capital firm with 100 employees located in Boston, Manchester, NH, NYC, Chicago, SF and Austin, TX. We are disrupting VC by bringing smart, simple venture capital portfolios to the 13 million accredited American investors who don’t have venture portfolios. Our secret sauce is our connected capital of over 400,000 alumni who provide capital, source deals, and add value to portfolio companies. On an annual basis, our teams raise a fund from their respective communities to venture with strong potential and exceptional lead investors. We are private, for profit, and not part of any school.

About Us

Alumni Ventures Group (www.avgfunds.com) is a dynamic, rapidly growing organization that builds and manages venture capital funds for alumni of top schools and other investors. We pride ourselves on making a key asset class accessible to investors who were previously shut out of venture capital—and our rapid growth confirms that we are addressing a real pain point for investors. Unlike most VC funds that raise money from a handful of institutions, our funds raise money in smaller amounts from a large group of investors, then build diverse venture portfolios for our investors. We don’t lead deals, but rather co-invest alongside top firms such as KP, Bessemer, Menlo Ventures, Mark Cuban, Andreessen, Khosla, NEA, and others. We are private, for profit, and not part of any University.
