Romulus Capital is an early stage VC fund founded out of MIT in 2008 with an emphasis on building, not betting on, technology and science-enabled companies. Our entrepreneurial genesis as a scrappy dorm room startup keeps us hungry, hands-on, and resonates with startups looking for a true partner in their business. We mainly focus on leading Seed & Series A rounds for B2B companies within two categories:
We believe in audacity, creativity, and authenticity–in our work, in our investments, and in our relationships. We take an engineering-minded approach to crafting the future–testing and measuring, revising and refining rather than betting and hoping. We focus on execution, achieving efficient, accelerated outcomes. We are global in our worldview, seeking farther than the eye can see and learning from diverse experiences and perspectives.
Above all, we value authentic, fruitful relationships, and we seek to be and to treasure good people.
We are attracted to businesses with world-class teams, large market opportunities, and a sustainable competitive advantage. When selecting companies, we focus on tech-enabled businesses with the potential to impact large, traditional verticals and companies employing deep research-based technologies.
