Note from Operator.VC

We're not VCs, we're operators who write checks. We've built software used by tens of millions of users. We've attracted hundreds of thousands of prospects without advertising. We've rung the bell at the NYSE to celebrate an IPO. Our operational experience includes key roles at HubSpot, CarGurus, Jana, SolidWorks, and some companies where things didn't work out. We've been there, and that's why entrepreneurs love working with us and seek us out as investors.


We plan on syndicating all of our deals.

For Mike Volpe's work at Operator.VC
I learned a ton from Yoav, both technically and about what it takes to build a successful startup. I hope to work with him again.
