The firm plans to make approximately 75-100 investments from its $165 million inaugural fund. These investments reinforce the firm’s commitment to a diversified portfolio, including new investments during the quarter in the IT, consumer and life science sectors.

Correlation Ventures leverages its proprietary predictive analytics to offer entrepreneurs and lead VC investors co-investment decisions within two weeks.
