New Stack Ventures is a seed-stage venture capital firm based in Chicago, IL.

New Stack Ventures is a seed and early-stage venture capital firm based in Chicago, Illinois. The firm was founded in 2015 by Nick Moran and Jeff Heitzman. The firm started as a syndicate on AngelList and continues to syndicate deals through the online funding platform. Moran is also the host of The Full Ratchet Podcast.

The firm's investment strategy is to lead deals at the first institutional stage of funding. New Stack Ventures makes initial investments of $100,000 or more into its portfolio companies.

New Stack Ventures focuses on companies in business and technology sectors like Internet of Things (IoT), "deep tech", and connected hardware devices, but the firm has made select investments outside those sectors.

New Stack Ventures invests in startup companies from U.S. markets that historically have not seen much venture capital investment activity, such as states in the Midwest.
