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.
