We Are A Venture Studio Focused On The TMT Sector
United Ventures is a venture firm that builds, funds and scales high-growth startups in the TMT sector (Technology, Media, and Telecom) using a proprietary venture studio model. We support a growing portfolio of companies and entrepreneurs in the U.S. and in Africa.
We BUILD Pre-Seed and Seed Companies
We turn ideas from our lab into early-stage companies by investing up to $300,000 in each venture using our proprietary venture studio model. We then assign more resources, including developers, and growth experts, to scale the ventures as autonomous entities. We also back a select number of mission-driven startups and minority founders in the cleantech, fintech, and gaming spaces.
Meet the United Ventures family. Our ventures operate in Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Ghana, Rwanda, Senegal, and soon Nigeria.
The N.I.C.E. Venture Studio Model
We build and scale ventures using our proprietary N.I.C.E. startup studio model. N.I.C.E. stands for Network, IP, Capital and Execution. It is a framework that enables venture firms to nurture and invest four types of capital: Relational, Intellectual, Financial and Experiential. The N.I.C.E. venture studio model was developed by the UNITED team with support from our advisors at MIT, and it is currently used by over 20 global companies.
Global Venture Builder
We are headquartered in Washington D.C. and we also maintain a presence in emerging markets with offices in Dubai and in West Africa. Our team members are based in Paris, London, Montreal, Dakar, Casablanca, Addis-Ababa, and Amman. Our portfolio companies operate in the US, Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, and Rwanda.
Building Wealth for Minorities and the Next Billion Users
We aim to advance financial and digital inclusion among American minorities and people of African descent. We nurture and grow a global ecosystem of principled leaders and companies that are united and dedicated to driving positive impact. Wealth creation and high impact are in our DNA and our ventures have a double bottom line commitment: to solve real challenges such as the digital divide and technology access while generating superior ROI.
