Line Ventures

Collaborative Fund is a leading source of capital for entrepreneurs pushing the world forward.

Line Ventures is a venture fund that supports revolutionary new start-ups, regardless of growth stage.

Article

Collaborative Fund was founded by Craig Shapiro in 2010 in New York City. They are an investment fund focused on supporting and investing in the shared future. The fund centers around two macro themes that they predict will drive business innovation in the coming years: the growth of the creative class and the concept of collaborative consumption.

It is a leading source of capital for entrepreneurs pushing the world forward. We increasingly see more investors joining us at the intersection of for-profit and for-good. Established partnerships like Sequoia Capital and Founders Fund have evolved to stress world-changing aspirations. New entrants like Obvious Ventures, Social Capital, Sherpa Capital, and others have joined the fun as well.

Investments

Collaborative Fund has raised a total of $113 million across 4 funds, their latest being Collaborative Fund IV. Collaborative Fund 2 raised $33 million in 2014, Collaborative Fund III raised $70 million and Collaborative and Sesame Workshop Fund raised $10 million in 2016. Investments include Flip, Spyce Food Co. and Circle Medical and exits include Osmo, Earnest and Pinch.

LINE Ventures was founded in 2014. The fund engages in flexible investment opportunities on a global scale, in areas such as Japan, the United States, China, Southeast Asia, and more.
