Gambit Ventures was formed to establish a foothold in the ever-growing landscape of both digital media and mobile by partnering with standout tech entrepreneurs. We back exceptional founders with a strong, product-oriented mindset who are looking to build a large, sustainable enterprise.
Our firsthand experience allows us to offer the capital, tactical and strategic guidance, as well as access to a powerful business network that are invaluable to early-stage companies. This immersive approach to investing in our partners is the special sauce that makes Gambit unique from traditional venture capital firms. Our team members have founded or co-founded 7 companies, helped run 4 companies, have been responsible for exits exceeding eight-figures, and currently serve as senior employees at companies valued over $1B, collectively.
We primarily make early stage investments into digital media and mobile technology companies in the New York City area.
The Gambit Mantra
Our team understands what it takes to turn an innovative idea into a company, and turn a company into a market-transforming business. Beyond having talented entrepreneurs and compelling technology, this success requires investors with commitment, awareness, and above all, hands-on experience. It requires investors who have stood in the same entrepreneurial shoes and started companies from scratch on a leap of faith. And it requires investors who are willing to work shoulder-to-shoulder, provide the right balance of strategic guidance, mentorship, and operating leverage to their partners. We work vigorously to get our companies to the next major milestone while employing Gambit’s resources to ensure that the team can execute on building a culture and product that promotes growth.
