Workbox’s Covid Safety Protocols. Learn More.
Workbox was founded to transform how value is created in the modern-day workplace.
Our venture business is focused on accelerating the growth of companies that also aim to
reshape the future of work in a post-pandemic world.
Workbox Ventures is a lead investor of Series Seed and Series A stage businesses that are disrupting the workplace landscape in the following three categories:
The journey for an early stage company is long and requires more than a check. We place a high value on long-term, relationship-based partnerships to drive value. Workbox’s mission is predicated on helping businesses succeed, and we heavily leverage our member platform, guided programming, and institutional relationships to ensure portfolio companies reach their full potential.
Our portfolio companies benefit from the greater Workbox platform and networking infrastructure in several ways.
We provide extensive ongoing support, programming, and resources for all of our portfolio companies to utilize virtually.
We offer a robust platform to connect you with other in-network founders, advisors, capital partners, and LPs.
We have a rapidly growing physical presence that portfolio companies can leverage to make personal connections and accelerate business development.
Workbox Ventures founding partners have been in the game for over 35 years as both investors and entrepreneurs. Originally colleagues at Brookfield Asset Management, John and Kyle rejoined forces at Workbox to raise the bar on the level of service provided to early stage companies by a venture partner.
We have created a two-pronged plaftorm that 1) provides LP investors with more intimate insight into their investments and 2) immerses our portfolio companies in a network of ongoing support to help them navigate rapid change. Workbox Ventures benefits from a seamless integration of powerful partnerships, a robust founder focused network, and a rapidly expanding physical presence.
