Deals sourced from extensive network of partners and entrepreneurs
Founded in January 2018, EQx Fund headquartered in Boston, MA, is an early stage Venture Capital fund that invests in extraordinary serial and first-time entrepreneurs. We leverage our partnership with the Boston Harbor Angels, which was voted one of the top 3 angel groups in the United States by CB Insights. Our partners have 20+ years of experience in investment and operational roles in the US and internationally and proceed with companies and founders that we all vote unanimously to invest in.
EQX was founded in 2018 because we believe in investing early and in the right entrepreneurs to build great [bio]tech companies.
Our investments are based on our ideal ‘EQX founder’, a person who possess seven of the most important characteristics to drive an idea to become a successful company.
Investing in Diverse Teams
It is part of our ethos to invest in gender, ethnic and cultural diverse leaders because we come from diverse backgrounds. For example, at the EQX I Fund, nearly 40% of our investments were made in female founders and even though this is significantly higher than the average venture capital industry, we know we have to do more, and we will.
Leveraging Trusted Relationships
EQX is a partner of Boston Harbor Angels, one of the top three angel investment groups in the US, to support our investment efforts.
Making the World a Better Place
We invest in people first and each one of our ‘EQX entrepreneurs’ are making the world a better place, from crushing the student debt pile to building cheaper and faster cloud storage for enterprises, from stem cell engineering to fighting Type 1 diabetes.
