We are a New York City-based venture capital firm focused on investing in technology-enabled businesses across Seed, Series A and Series B.
We are a generalist fund that invests in growth-oriented businesses across a diverse set of industries.
We only invest in businesses that have demonstrated quantifiable financial and operational fundamentals, including a scaling customer base, early product-market fit, and (typically) real revenue growth.
We primarily invest in companies based in the US, Canada, Latin America, or Israel.
We have clear and defined investment heuristics and strategy. This enables us to get to yes - or no - very quickly. We understand what it's like to run a company and respect entrepreneurs' time.
We do not lead deals; we prefer to co-invest. We co-invest in rounds with other well-run firms.
We are conviction investors. It’s not uncommon for us to commit early before a lead has been selected and make introductions to VC funds we work closely with to help founders secure their round.
We consider ourselves extremely resourceful partners for our portfolio companies and provide introductions to customers, investors, partnerships, and talent.
We do not hold board seats, but are always available and always aligned with supporting founders' missions in whatever capacity.
We leverage our operating experience to act as a consiglieri to our portfolio companies for best practices in all functions of business operations.
Over the past decade, Interplay has co-founded over a dozen service companies tailor-made to help venture-backed startups scale, including: growth marketing, customer outsourcing, software development, accounting, and legal services. The executives of our service companies act as advisers to our portfolio companies in their respective fields of expertise. Our platform supports over 10% of all venture-backed companies in America today and we employ over 500 people.
