Cintrifuse Overview:

Cintrifuse is dedicated to making Greater Cincinnati the #1 Startup ecosystem in the Midwest. We’re here to connect and catalyze tech startups with our extensive network. We inspire ideas, empower founders, lure talent, and attract investors in ways that make our region a magnet for entrepreneurs and innovators worldwide.

Through its SEC-registered investment advisor, Cintrifuse Fund Management, LLC, (dba Cintrifuse Capital), Cintrifuse Capital has over $180 million of assets under management. In Funds I & II, we focused on investment in some of the country’s and region’s leading venture funds (Greycroft, Lerer Hippeau, Revolution, Mercury, Madrona, Refinery, Atomic, and more). We will soon be investing out of Fund III, through which we will continue investing in other venture funds, but also expand our focus to include direct investment into Cincinnati-area startups.

We recently completed a 10-year assessment of Cintrifuse’s impact that underscored the importance of greater local startup growth, new approaches to corporate innovation, and heightened focus and expertise in strategic verticals such as Supply Chain, Sustainability, Fintech, Health Care and Diversity.
