A&E Investments is a venture capital investment partner that values founders and supports their ambitious journey. We are committed to working with founders throughout their journey. We get involved sometimes as early as whiteboarding with founders to find that first idea. We work with teams to find the right founding members to succeed. We write that first check and help founders navigate setting up the right network of investors and advisors at the right time to scale. Sometimes it’s helping to build the partnerships necessary to differentiate the startups that are first to market from the ones that define the market.
