THAT’S OK. WE’RE NOT THE TYPICAL VENTURE FUND.

The Comcast Ventures Catalyst Fund was established to invest in technology companies founded by underrepresented ethnic minority entrepreneurs. The venture industry has largely ignored the potential of these groups to build highly successful companies. We believe there is tremendous untapped value, and we are going after it with great passion, tenacity and conviction.

GAME-CHANGING CAPITAL

We find, fund and nurture smart entrepreneurs, who sometimes fall outside the traditional tech ecosystem, giving them the same access to resources that their well-connected peers might enjoy. The Catalyst Fund makes seed and Series A investments and has the ability to participate in future financing rounds.

EXPERIENCED VCs

In addition to capital, we offer extensive connections and years of experience with company building. As an affiliate of Comcast Ventures and Comcast NBCUniversal, we regularly leverage the knowledge, network and resources of colleagues down the hall and across the country on behalf of our entrepreneurs.

OUR STORY

The Comcast Ventures Catalyst Fund was established in 2011 as part of Comcast Corp.’s acquisition of NBCUniversal. Comcast proposed a unique investing vehicle to elevate minority entrepreneurship by matching capital and resources with underrepresented minority entrepreneurs with high potential.

WE FOCUS ON CONSUMER, MOBILE AND ENTERPRISE STARTUPS.

INVESTMENT CRITERIA AND SECTORS

We operate like any other fund, seeking out the best teams, disruptive products and promising technologies with the potential to scale big and create significant value. We typically invest in teams that have a minimally viable product, some traction or evidence of product-market fit.  We are excited about finding tomorrow’s industry leaders, today. Our primary investment areas are consumer, mobile and enterprise, with opportunistic investments in emerging sectors that show great promise.
