As entrepreneurs, we have been in your shoes, so the Originate team supports our portfolio companies well beyond our financial resources. We share our experiences and perspectives from our own lessons learned, and from our unique skill sets. Also help you steer through the challenges that are often inevitable: tough personnel issues, hiring the right people, creative fund-raising, and sharing the little wins that are oh-so important. We can be a sounding board or be all-ears when needed, too. Our most important order of business--make sure the CEO has the right plan and resources to bring the vision to life.

Originate Growth Fund #1 is fully deployed and not making any new investments at this time.
Originate Ventures is a venture capital investment firm, targeting early stage product and services companies located in Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic region. The firm focuses on opportunities with medical devices, healthcare, consumer, information technology, Web-based and commercial products. Operating with an entrepreneurial spirit and vision, Originate’s investments range in size from $500,000 to $4,000,000.
We believe our brand building techniques and experience uniquely permit us to accelerate growth and reduce additional capital rounds, allowing founding entrepreneurs to retain more ownership. Our almost three decades of experience, in over 60 categories, also allows us to better identify and assist in creating strong brands. Finally, we take pride in being Entrepreneurs first, though the Partners have strong track records as business owners and management consultants.
