Alumni Ventures has democratized venture capital for the everyday investor. I get the benefit of diversifying my portfolio with a new asset class, a professionally managed fund, access to high-quality syndicated deals, and a massive network at a price point that previously was only affordable by the ultra wealthy.
Michael Levy
Towerview Ventures Investor
Investment partners are so much more than just money – the best ones find ways to support without being a burden. Greg and Nancy have been fantastic to work with and model what great networking can look like.
Robert Crowe
CEO, Matchwell
Nancy and Greg made fundraising easy. They are responsive, transparent and ready to help at a moment's notice. Anduin is excited to be a part of the Towerview family.

Ellipsis Health
The Towerview Ventures team has been huge supporters of Ellipsis Health from the beginning. They are reliable, trustworthy, and proactive investors. They are both incredibly well networked and readily available to make introductions when needed.
Mainul Mondal
Founder and CEO, Ellipsis Health
A lot of investors speak about value add, but the team at Alumni Ventures actually provide value. With every entrepreneur that approaches me about raising money I share the not-so-secret weapon suggestion of Alumni Ventures.
Nate Checketts
CEO & Co-Founder, Rhone
Nancy and Greg have been supportive partners and awesome to work with. They provided candid, unbiased advice from day one and it felt like they always had my best interest in mind. Both are former operators and have deep empathy for the journey.
Andrew Luong
CEO, Doorvest
Looking at the makeup of companies that Towerview Ventures has in their portfolio, I can see they are focused on investing in founders with diverse backgrounds - who statistically have better VC returns - and this is a topic of import for me. It further confirms that I have placed my money in the right place.
