Ridge Ventures (Formerly known as IDG Ventures USA)

New York, New York
Ridge Ventures funds experienced founders redefining how the world interacts with software. Whether for the cloud or the edge, we look for companies delivering advanced technologies, new distribution models and incredible user experiences to market. While we’re focused on SaaS and infrastructure solutions for the enterprise, we also backstartups in adtech, gaming and ecommerce. We are firm believers in “where there’s a big problem, there’s a big opportunity.” We love Series A deals and helping create something out of chaos.
