A&E Investments is a venture capital investment partner that values founders and their ambitious journey. We are committed to working with founders throughout their journey. We get involved sometimes as early as working with founders to refine that first idea. We work with founds to find the right founding members to give an idea its best chance for success. We write that first check or help founders navigate setting up the right network of investors at the right time for growth. Sometimes it’s helping build the partnerships necessary to differentiate the startups that are first to market from the ones that define the market.
