Origin Ventures Values

We have your back

  • If our portfolio companies succeed, we succeed.
  • We don’t “flip” businesses.
  • We do not invest in competitors of our portfolio companies.
  • Maintaining our reputation depends on us always doing the right thing.

Genuine partnership

  • It is a privilege to work alongside entrepreneurs.
  • As former operators and engineers, we know what the other side of the table is like.
  • We are responsive to entrepreneurs before and after investment.
  • We only invest in companies in which we believe we can add significant value.

People first

  • We listen more than we talk.
  • We give candid, constructive feedback to companies and each other.
  • Entrepreneurs we back, regardless of our success together, are our best references.
  • We maintain inclusive and safe workplaces free of discrimination and harassment within Origin Ventures, our portfolio companies, and the broader entrepreneurial ecosystem. We embrace diversity on every dimension.

Together we win

  • We align ourselves with our LPs by investing a meaningful amount of our own capital in every fund.
  • We syndicate because we do not have all the answers and value the additional resources co-investors bring.
  • We value the opinions of all of Origin’s team members, regardless of seniority.
  • Our team works together on every investment and our compensation is never deal-specific.
