Liebenthal Ventures blossomed from our family office. We have been in real estate since 1983 and have investments in several metropolitan areas such as NYC, LA and Miami. Additionally, we run a public company hedge fund that has grown over 200% in the last 5 years. After fielding success in the previous industries, we decided in 2013 to expand to the startup/venture capital space, further diversifying our risk portfolio. Our first investment was in LoopPay, which in 15 months had a highly successful takeout to Samsung and is now Samsung Pay. We have since made multiple other investments. For more information on the companies we have invested in, please visit our Portfolio page. Our thesis is simple and makes us different from other venture firms. We are industry agnostic. If you have a world-class idea/product and you are a dynamic founder, then your organization is a candidate for investment. Our angel/seed investments typically range from $25K-$500K depending on the opportunity.
Once Liebenthal Ventures commits to an investment, we are also committed to your success. Our value add can range from suggestions based on our experience and/or introductions to investors, customers, suppliers, partners, and others from our vast network.
