About Pritzker Group Venture Capital and the Pritzker Group Venture Fellows Program

Pritzker Group Venture Capital (PGVC) helps entrepreneurs build market-leading technology companies at every stage of their growth. Since its founding in 1996, the firm has worked side-by-side with entrepreneurs at more than 150 companies, building partnerships based on trust and integrity. The firm’s proprietary capital structure allows for tremendous flexibility, and its experienced team of investment professionals and entrepreneurs offers companies a vast network of strategic relationships and guidance.

Created in 2013, the Pritzker Group Venture Fellows Program aims to help build community and support talented student entrepreneurs by providing them with mentorship and access to the firm’s network to help them launch and build their startups. We also offer our PGVC Fellows the option of accepting a SAFE (Simple Agreement for Future Equity) convertible security if they so choose.
