We are committed to beneficial partnerships that demand mutual appreciation, honesty even in the face of challenges and setbacks, and respect for multiple points of view.

Mark Buffington, Managing Partner

We work shoulder-to-shoulder with founders and investors.

We seek partners who share our ethical, gritty, curious, brave, and honest nature. And we treat every member of our ecosystem with respect. For our investor partners, it means providing the highest “duty of care” they deserve for entrusting us. With our founder partners, we are committed stewards of their dreams. And for our team, we are a compassionate meritocracy of ideas.


We look where others do not to find extraordinary opportunity.

The potential for world-class innovation exists everywhere. But, those who provide real know-how and real support do not. We take a wider view to bring great ideas together and support them with guidance and capital. It’s how we catalyze innovation into rapidly-scaling category leaders.

Andy Seavers, Co-founder & CEO of Case Status

All VCs say they are there to help, but how they help differs greatly. BIP Venture's way of delivering help takes many forms, but each manner keeps the focus on what you need as a leader. Balanced, respectful, insightful, mindful and valuable help is what BIP Ventures delivers to our company, and it is making all the difference.

Sean Barry, CEO of Kobiton

Especially when we’ve faced growing pains, this team has shown up. They’ve helped us to pull the right levers at the right times, like knowing when to be aggressive with go-to-market efforts and when to hold tight to operational rigor. And as we’ve grown, they have made sure we are savvy with things like interviewing and compensation so we can build the strongest possible team. With BIP Ventures, we know we’re never going it alone.

Dan Ciprari, CEO of Pointivo

BIP Ventures fuels passion for profit and returns for all. I am humbled by all that they do in taking a wider view on people, diversity, and ongoing skilling. There's a big difference in how they do business – and it mirrors the values of SkillCycle.️
