In our new article series, we introduce the most exciting venture capital firms that are open for LP investments to our family office network. The article belongs to our exclusive single family office guidebook, where we give guidance on the most relevant topics for newly established and already existing family investment vehicles.
In this article, we talked to Twenty Seven Ventures (27V), a venture capital firm focused on empowering the next generations by fostering e-learning and productivity companies worldwide, contributing current and next generations to achieve more and overcome their goals with technology.
Familyofficehub.io (FO): Briefly describe your focus: in which kind of startups are you investing, where is your geographical focus, what’s your average ticket size?
27V: We are curating a group of thoughtful founders building the foundations of human learning and productivity. We invest in companies worldwide that are focused on the EdTech and Future of Work (FoW) and are at the pre-Seed and Seed stages.
Our average ticket investment is $25k – $250k.
FO: What are exciting companies in your portfolio – and why?
27V: We’re big believers in the newest wave of EdTech companies, which is much more focused on community and peer-supported learning. This is especially prescient today as the new generation of learners is digitally native and very comfortable – nee prefer – building relationships in virtual spaces.
Some of our portfolio companies are Fiveable, Edlyft, and 101Edu.
FO: Why should a Family Office invest in 27V as LP?
27V: The team is completely focused on our investment sectors – Education and Future of Work – and we are increasingly being recognized as thought leaders in the verticals globally. We have co-invested with top-tier global investors including KPCB, Emerson Collective, Point72 Ventures, Village Global, Next Play Ventures, Urban.US, Google, BMW, YC, and more. For family offices looking at pure financial returns and access to co-investment opportunities in high growth global startups, 27V is a great vehicle for investment.
Additionally, if the Family Offices operate in our chosen sectors – education and work – we are able to provide insights and help the principals operate at the bleeding edge by staying connected to the amazing founders we invest in.
FO: Are you also open to investments from European family offices?
27V: Yes, absolutely! We just made our first investment in Europe – an EdTech company out of London – and we’re just getting started.
FO: Thanks for your time!
