Cintrifuse and Syndicate Fund Overview
Cintrifuse’s mission is to lead and accelerate the continued development of Greater Cincinnati as a disruptive, tech-based innovation economy. Our vision is to establish Greater Cincinnati as the #1 start-up hub in the Midwest and among the top innovation hubs in the nation. To do this, we inspire ideas … empower founders … lure talent … and seduce investment … in ways that make our region a magnet for entrepreneurs and innovators worldwide.
As part of the Cintrifuse organization and mission, we operate a “fund of funds” that provides exposure to a broad network of venture capital fund managers and thousands of startups, driving access to the best emerging technologies. Our strategy allows us to partner with top venture investors and generate strong financial returns.
Cintrifuse has three building blocks in which our Syndicate Fund plays a key role:
- We leverage our Fund to access cutting-edge technologies, generate strong financial returns, and create investment pools for entrepreneurs.
- We help the largest corporations in our region discover the innovations —and the innovators — who can help them grow and lead their industries.
- And, we work with entrepreneurs to accelerate their startups and connect them to global, industry-leading customers right here in our own backyard.
We have more than $115 million in venture capital invested and at work. We have hundreds of startups in our local pipeline. We have dozens of major companies (“BigCo’s”) working with us to accelerate innovation. We’re playing a central role in regional “restart” efforts. And we’re building a reputation that has corporate leaders, startup founders, and venture capitalists nationwide talking about Greater Cincinnati.
Our Syndicate Fund currently consists of two individual, jointly managed funds that operate as a Fund of Funds, investing in venture funds outside the region to bring capital and VCs to Greater Cincinnati. We’re planning to launch a third Fund that will:
- Focus on a few critical strategic pillars (e.g., supply chain, connected health).
- Strike a balance between the Fund of Funds approach and direct investment in our community.
- Support women and minority-led entrepreneurs.
