We invest in innovative technologies with big business potential

At Comcast Ventures, we love working with entrepreneurs who have ideas that will shift industries and impact the way people interact with their worlds. And we thrive on helping take those ideas big.

By combining the best characteristics of traditional venture funds with the technical insight, scale and experience of a strategic investor, CV offers a best-in-class value proposition for entrepreneurs, portfolio companies, partnering investors, and the Comcast family of companies.

Our Focus: Advertising, Consumer, Enterprise and Infrastructure

Since our inception in 1999 (under our original name, Comcast Interactive Capital), Comcast Ventures has consistently been a catalyst for both innovation and solid financial returns. Our diverse team brings experience in technology sectors ranging from gaming to mobile, media to consumer Internet -- even finance and operations.

To a person, we're excited about the way that technology is changing the world in which we live, work and play — and about turning potentially disruptive ideas and technologies in the advertising, consumer, enterprise and infrastructure spaces into thriving, successful businesses

 

Our Criteria: Idea, Technology, Team

We look for investment opportunities in which three main criteria are met:

  • an innovative idea that can scale big,
  • defensible technology, and
  • a solid team.

We work with our portfolio companies to create the best possible path to market success—by putting the resources of our Limited Partner to work on their behalf, and helping establish the key industry relationships through our vast networks.

 

Our Approach: From Seed to Series B, We Jumpstart Innovation

Initial investments typically range in size from $2 million to $15 million. We will consider investing in promising businesses at any point of development from seed through late stage. We seek a meaningful stake in our portfolio companies.

We typically lead financing rounds and generally participate as a Director on the boards of our portfolio companies. We enjoy collaborating with management teams and other venture capital funds or strategic investors.

Our Name Is Only Part Of The Story

We offer entrepreneurs all the strengths of a strategic investor, including the resources and expertise of Comcast Corporation (which owns NBCUniversal). But, like a traditional or independent fund, we measure our success by the returns of our portfolio companies, so our interests are directly aligned with those of our entrepreneurs and co-investors, and we operate with speed and flexibility.

Under Comcast Ventures umbrella, we've established the Catalyst Fund, an early stage investor in minority-led tech companies. We also partnered with Gil Beyda on seed fund opportunites via Genacast Ventures.
