    Description:

    Formerly IDG Ventures, Ridge Ventures is an early stage venture capital fund investing in experienced founders redefining how the world interacts with software. The firm backs companies delivering advanced technologies, new distribution models and incredible user experiences to market. Founded in 2007, Ridge evolved out of a single-LP fund started by the media company IDG. Ridge invests in late seed and early Series A deals (typically writing checks in the $3-7M range).
