We are seasoned operators with deep corporate and start-up experience, we know what it’s like to walk in entrepreneurial shoes and we know how to move the needle for our companies.

Our logo represents the “Keel Fin,” which forms the foundation of every vessel, enabling it to stay on track, balanced, and upright through volatile waters. Similarly, at Fin VC, we serve as a hands-on fiduciary in steering our Portfolio Companies and Investors through the global Financial Technology waters.
