What We Do

We believe the world is changing faster than ever.

We are an early-stage venture capital fund investing in transformative companies harnessing information growth and computing power to change the world.

We believe the most important companies of the future will be the product of three forces: the exponentially increasing availability of information; rapid advancements in the science of computing; and the ingenuity of visionary founders.

We have seen the information + computing + people thesis transform the business of investment management, and we support companies applying it to other industries.

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 and healthcare to real estate and consumer hardware, we support data- and computing-driven transformation in every industry.

Where we have expertise

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

How We Help

We have deep expertise and an extensive technical network.

Throughout 15+ years of building Two Sigma, we’ve learned a lot about what makes a technology company succeed. Though we can hardly be called a startup anymore, our team and the over 1,500 employees and 200 PhDs we’re lucky to call colleagues bring a wealth of extraordinary experience to every company we work with.
