What We Do

We believe the world is changing
faster than ever.

We see rapid innovation creating massive opportunity for ambitious entrepreneurs to solve humanity’s toughest challenges.

We know important solutions will come from the intelligent application of math, data, and advanced computing—at Two Sigma, we’ve been making that bet for 15+ years.

We are an early-stage venture capital fund investing patient financial capital and expert human capital in entrepreneurs using data and engineering to create the future.

 

Our Focus

We support companies using data science and advanced engineering to create the future.

Early stage

We invest early—from seed to series B—and stick around as a long-term partner.

Across industries

From infrastructure tools to real estate or consumer hardware, we support transformation in every industry.

Where we have expertise

We bring Two Sigma brainpower in software engineering, quantitative research, machine learning and more to all we do.

How we help

We provide access to deep expertise and an extensive technical network.

Throughout 15+ years of building Two Sigma Investments, we’ve learned a lot about what makes a technology company succeed. With over 1,200 employees, including over 250 PhDs, Two Sigma Investments can hardly be called a startup anymore, but we bring this experience and expertise to every company we work with.

Support

We provide expertise and advice to our portfolio companies to help them succeed. We particularly focus on offering support around product development, team and culture building, strategic partnerships, and public relations.

People

We offer our support to our portfolio companies with all aspects of team building, from defining company values to sourcing top talent to developing new managers and coaching executive teams on effective leadership.

We helped the Tinybop leadership team integrate coaching, mentorship, and better feedback practices to improve learning and performance.

Product

Our extended network of engineers and data scientists dig in to give our companies the extra bandwidth and know-how to get products to market.

We hosted a 2-day competition with 20 Two Sigma data scientists to help Whoop increase the accuracy of its wearable heart-rate monitor.

Partnerships

We use Two Sigma Investments’ expansive network to help our companies connect with the customers and partners they need to grow.

We helped Eave get introduced to potential capital markets partners.

PR

We help companies tell their story, from assisting with PR or social media strategy, to making intros to reporters to get it into print.

We helped Entrypoint strategize and execute a PR campaign.

Space

Our co-working and event space in downtown NYC is a place for our portfolio companies to work, hold meetings, or host events. Several seed-stage companies use the space as their full-time office. For the rest of the portfolio, the space is a home-base in NYC for drop-ins, meetings and events.
