Academic Capital is a global venture capital firm that invests in earliest stage startups led by most passionate innovators from academia in the United States and China.

Academic Capital was founded in 2016 out of a simple vision: the faculties, researchers, and scholars are most creative thinkers in the world. But they need venture resources and operational experience to turn their exciting innovations into disruptive startups.

We are different from institutional investors; we believe our mission is to magnify the creative power of those in academia through relationships and resources essential to their success. With strong networks across the academia, we offer world-class expertise to our portfolio companies.
