We didn’t come from the VC world. We’re changing it.

WE’RE A TEAM WITH A WIDE ARRAY OF INTERESTS AND PERSPECTIVES.

We're excited by what could be. We exhibit grit in the face of challenges. We're honest, empathetic, and collaborative — because how we do the work matters just as much as how well we do it.

What if a group of people who weren’t usually VCs were VCs?

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

We don't just talk about diversity at Initialized. We live it.

Our team has been inclusive from the start and we are determined to keep it that way. Almost a quarter of our team identify as BIPOC and nearly 60% are women.

Our diversity, equity, and inclusion team works to cast an ever widening net to enable investment in founders of all races, genders, and sexual orientations.

You can read our anti-discrimination and anti-harassment policy here.

Initialized is more than just a great place to work. Join us.

Current Jobs

We are impressed by the distance a person’s traveled, not by what life handed them at the start.

None of us at Initialized set out to be VCs. Now that we’re here, we make our own rules.
