Best first conversation
Before there is a company, there is a conversation - we want to be that first conversation
We invest as early as the pre-seed round and as late as Series A. We reserve capital to follow-on as you scale.
Made in NYC
NYC is our home and we are proud of it. We have a deep network here, but fund companies anywhere.
We want to be your first commitment. We don't believe in sharp elbows and invest alongside other investors.
To the Moon
Tech has evolved from a vertical to a horizontal changing every industry. We back founders that dream about things the world has never seen.
Friend in the Room
We believe in honesty and tough love in building relationships with founders. We have your back. WYSIWYG.
We partner with entrepreneurs who value integrity, curiosity, and ambition.

Our goal at BoxGroup is to invest at the earliest stage.
Early stage fundraising has taken on many names - friends & family round, pre-seed, seed, etc and we're open to all of them. We're comfortable with what early means - a lot of assumptions, more vision than traction, and raw product.
We support companies based on conviction in the team. We believe in "founder market fit" - the concept that certain teams are able to unlock specific markets. This is the first step to get to "product market fit." Ideas tend not to be equal opportunity which means that it requires the right team to bring a vision to life.
We hope technology can be a catalyst for positive change and progress. We look for entrepreneurs working at the beginning of movements in existing markets or new markets yet to be created and with visions to create the next generation of category defining businesses.
Lastly, companies are borne out of leadership. The strongest leaders display paired values and we seek out: humility with audacity, genius with hustle, curiosity with authenticity, honesty with salesmanship, and wacky with pragmatic.
