Karlin Ventures is an early-stage venture capital fund based in Los Angeles. We are value-add partners helping entrepreneurs who take contrarian approaches to create impactful solutions to big, interesting problems. Karlin Ventures is an affiliate of Karlin Asset Management, a private investment firm managing over $1.4 billion of unleveraged equity capital.
Given that we have only one LP, we are extraordinarily nimble and responsive. We make quick investment decisions, and typically get back to entrepreneurs within 1 – 2 weeks.
We are long-term partners with the resources to support our portfolio companies in their subsequent funding rounds. In addition, as entrepreneurs ourselves, we want to see every company succeed and go out of our way to offer needed support in any way we can.
We have deep connections through our larger investment fund and its affiliates, such as the 20 Million Minds Foundation. Also, we maintain close relationships with the leading private investment funds, venture funds, and other early stage investors in Southern California and Silicon Valley, and are always willing to syndicate investment opportunities with them.
