ABOUT FITZ GATE VENTURES

WEBSITE

Fitz Gate Ventures is a seed and pre-seed venture capital fund that invests a majority of its capital in companies from the Princeton ecosystem. A portion of its capital is available to be invested more broadly, and Fitz Gate has invested in two Houston-based companies so far: Cheers (https://cheershealth.com/) and Spruce (https://getspruce.com/)

Through its 200 member “Friends of Fitz” advisory board comprised of alumni, faculty, administrators, trustees and students as well as the broader worldwide alumni network, the fund engages with the Princeton community to help it discover and diligence the best startups and then help its founders succeed (introductions to more capital, customers, mentors).

Fitz Gate’s portfolio companies have received follow-on funding at premiums from Sequoia, Canaan, Tribeca, Andreessen Horowitz, Citi Ventures, Spark Capital, Focus Financial Partners (KKR) and other leading VC firms after Fitz Gate invested.

Two of Fitz Gate’s portfolio company founders have recently won Princeton University’s highest award for excellence in entrepreneurship.

Fitz Gate’s portfolio companies have been profiled in the New York Times, CNN, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Vogue The Financial Times and Forbes.

Fitz Gate’s principals teach venture capital both at Princeton (grad school seminar series) and at Rice University (MBA).

Because of the success of its first fund, Fitz Gate has recently launched its second fund. Fitz Gate currently has approximately $25mm under management.
