We recently announced our new $100M early stage fund that we closed in May, along with a series of new additions to the team in June. Now that July is upon us, we’ve started to make investments out of the new fund and thought it would be good to share how we’re evolving the businesses we want to invest in.
We are excited to welcome some new faces to the Collaborative team. Specifically, Nathan Friedman, Mimi Valdés, and Dwipal Desai are joining as venture advisors.
I am thrilled to share that I am joining the Collaborative Fund partnership alongside Craig, Lauren, Morgan, and the rest of the amazing Collaborative team.
Collaborative Fund is excited to announce that we led Dandelion’s recent seed round.
I first met Lauren Loktev in 2012.
When I hired Kanyi back in 2011, he was an optimistic, smart, fun-loving, thoughtful person. We immediately hit it off. We both cared deeply about making the world a better place, and that bond proved to be a foundation for an incredible business partnership and friendship.
We’re excited to welcome Morgan Housel to the Collaborative Fund team.
Morgan and I met over a year ago and immediately hit it off. His sensibility, pragmatic optimism, sense of humor, and diverse set of interests made him a perfect fit for our group.
We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Sesame Workshop. Together, we are launching a new fund, Collab+Sesame, focused on childhood development. Below are some questions and answers about this initiative!
Today is an exciting day at Collaborative Fund. First I’d like to welcome our newest partner – Lauren Loktev.
A little over three years ago, Craig invited me to join him on a journey to create a platform for investing in creative entrepreneurs trying to change the world.
