Philosophy

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.

TIA Ventures is a seed-stage fund based in NYC that invests in extraordinary companies led by high-execution teams. Our diligence-driven investment strategy centers on using in-depth customer research to assess product/market fit — the primary success driver for early stage companies. The entrepreneurs we partner with are dedicated to creating powerful, customer-relevant solutions to problems worth solving.
