About

Origin Ventures, founded in 1999, is a leading venture capital firm composed entirely of former operators and engineers with extensive venture investing experience. The firm’s realized performance places it in the top 5% of VC firms nationally.

 

While Origin is based in Chicago, the firm invests across the country in emerging software, online marketplace, and digital content businesses capable of exponential growth through innovation and hard work. Typical investments are in Series A rounds in companies that have achieved preliminary product-market fit. Origin’s initial check can range from $1M to $3M.

 

In 2015, the firm created the Origin Ventures Network, an engaged community of portfolio companies, to offer expanded opportunities for collaboration and support amongst the portfolio companies’ hundreds of employees. By providing the network with dedicated tools and resources, Origin helps its portfolio companies solve problems faster and navigate the challenges of growing into a market leader.
