Ludlow operates differently because we’re a different kind of VC. We believe in VC without ego. We wear our hearts on our sleeves, avoiding the puffery and posturing that has given venture capital a bad name. We fund the dreams of entrepreneurs and startups, becoming close friends with the teams we invest in. We invest with insane conviction and love backing the right teams when others think it's too early.
Truly great companies are built on trust and friendship (and rainbows and luck). VC is a customer service business. Whether it's testing product, leveraging our network, or forcing people to download your app, we're here to help. You make our dream jobs possible and we're forever thankful for that. Check out some of our other projects - www.carpool.vc and www.computer.show
This is VC done right.
Companies we're proudly invested in.
