With thousands of brilliant investors, it's no wonder they can get just about anyone on the phone within a week. As crazy as it sounds, in today's world, money is almost easier to find than advice. Alumni Ventures brings both. It's been a true pleasure.

From day one, the AV team have been incredibly supportive — not only have they made valuable introductions that have already moved our business forward, but the team are always on hand to help when we ask. We really value their advice and insight as well as the access they provide to a highly relevant network.

116 Street gives me access to high quality and later stage deals that are an invaluable component of my overall investment strategy.

116 Street Ventures gives me access to the great Columbia network of entrepreneurs and fast-growing, leading-edge companies. The venture capital investments I gain access to through 116 Street Ventures offer a good diversifier for my overall investment portfolio.

I'm very pleased with the quality of investments and the professionalism of the 116th Street fund and team. The fund, and AV more broadly, have been excellent partners and I hope to stay involved with them for a long, long time.

116th Street Ventures had the curiosity to develop an in-depth understanding of our business before investing and their enthusiasm continued after the deal was done.
