Being a valuable partner is more than providing capital.
Partner from Inception Through Exit
We partner with visionary teams from inception through their growth journey, as early and growth stage investors, active board members and hands-on advisors. We are proud to be among the first investors and long-term partners to industry leaders who are empowering individuals and businesses through the innovative use of AI and other transformative technologies.
We invest early and follow on
We lead Seed and Series A rounds and typically reserve 60% of capital for follow-on rounds to support companies’ continued growth. Our initial investments range from $500,000 to $5 million.
We operate as an extension of the founders' network
We are active board members and hands-on advisors, providing resources, guidance and services to help portfolio companies grow. Founders have access to our international team of operators, veteran investors, advisors and CIO Council.
We help founders solve global business challenges from four strategic locations
We have a track record of helping build B2B software companies and remain focused on supporting transformation across the enterprise. Our team is based in Miami, New York, San Francisco and Tel Aviv to help founders build for global markets.
Blumberg Capital was an invaluable partner to DoubleVerify. They were the first money in, giving us the capital needed to start building our product, while also helping with business development and opening doors in the US. They supported us every step of the way, leading up to the IPO. When I started my next company, DataHeroes, I had no doubt who I wanted as my first investor.

Blumberg Capital was always our target seed round investor. The team’s experience in the space with a proven track record is unmatched. Their value add goes beyond capital and are deeply integrated into our strategy on a regular basis. I couldn’t have a better lead and member of our board.
The Blumberg Capital team has always demonstrated a unique understanding of the global business landscape, helping founders navigate and scale in an international environment. Over the years, we built a trusted founder-investor partnership that helped Trulioo grow from two Canadian co-founders to a multinational unicorn helping some of the world’s biggest brands address identity management.

Being a strong partner means more than providing venture capital. Beyond serving as board members and strategic advisors, we arm founders with services to help them reach their milestones.
Business Development and Partnerships
Early and ongoing customer feedback is a critical step in establishing product market fit and achieving revenue goals. We work closely with portfolio companies on go-to-market strategies and connect them with our network of potential partners and customers.
HR and Recruiting
Building the right team is key to success. We provide HR and recruiting expertise to help portfolio companies with organizational development, recruiting and retaining talent.
Marketing & Communications
Effectively communicating a company’s value proposition to the right audiences is an ongoing exercise. We help portfolio companies build and scale their marketing strategies, hiring plans and execution of content, media relations and other communications programs.
Building a new company requires a range of tools and resources. Portfolio companies work with us to navigate finance, legal, real estate and other operational areas at launch and throughout their startup journey.
Startups must show customers and investors that they have a “need to have” vs. “nice to have” solution. Blumberg Capital’s CIO Council helps our team identify the “need to haves” and then helps these companies grow, as an extension of our team and sometimes as company advisors or customers. Through the Council, IT leaders connect with peers and get an inside look at new technologies that could impact their businesses and industries. CIO Council members share diverse industry experiences across sectors and companies such as Albertsons, Nutanix, Okta, P&G.
