and Stage Does Grape Arbor Target?
GrapeArborVC’s investments focus on companies for which the internet is essential.
What Value Do We Add?
You'd have to ask our entrepreneurs and co-investors, but as committed repeat players
in the space, we have many relationships and have worked with numerous start-ups as they have cycled through the angel and
venture process to exit. Our bios will give you a sense of the depth and breadth of our experience in and commitment to the
space. Collectively, our team has worked in or with hundreds of
angel and venture-backed companies. For people with
whom we enter serious investment discussions, we are happy to provide references.
