Origin Ventures

Origin Ventures

Origin Ventures, founded in 1999, is a venture capital firm composed entirely of former operators and engineers with venture investing experience. Origin is headquartered in Chicago with an office in Salt Lake City. The firm invests across the United States and Canada in companies that enable a generation of Digital Natives to live, work, and play on their own terms. This generation of Millennials and younger has immense and growing purchasing power and has become the largest generation in the workforce. They interact with their environment differently than all previous generations, and Origin is targeting companies that cater to the changes this generation has catalyzed across numerous markets. Origin targets business models including software, online marketplace, and consumer-facing businesses capable of exponential growth through innovation and hard work. The typical investment is in Seed and Series A rounds for companies that have achieved product-market fit. The firm also operates the Origin Ventures Network, an engaged community of portfolio companies that provides opportunities for collaboration and support including in-person and online summit and communities, curated introductions to mentors and talent, and resources founders need to scale. By providing dedicated tools and resources, Origin helps its companies navigate common issues and challenges faced by early-stage companies along the path towards success. The network also fosters a culture of collaboration and support amongst hundreds of portfolio employees. Previous investments include Grubhub, DialogTech, Ahalogy, Teem, Cameo, 15Five, BacklotCars, and many other market-leading companies.
