Who We Are at 500 Startups


500 Startups helps fund and grow awesome tech startup companies, and is led by Silicon Valley super-angel Dave McClure. We are NOT your ordinary VC firm.

We focus on making large numbers of early stage investments, and offer our portfolio companies unique access to design, distribution, and data workshops, and to mentors who radically improve the companies they work with.

We work in a huge, open space office side-by-side with the cutting edge startups we invest in (watch our video!) The office is an incredible place to work and learn, as we bring in mentors and speakers from places like Google, Facebook, top VC firms, and other startups from around the world!

We have been featured in nearly every tech blog: from TechCrunch to Mashable and GigaOm! We were also recently featured in Time Magazine. At a minimum, our founders must be audacious, innovative, and disruptive… and at 500 Startups, we challenge ourselves to also embody those qualities when we help startups.
