Business Description

BoxGroup is an investment fund company based in New York City. The company was founded in 2007 by David Tisch, grandson of entrepreneur Laurence A. Tisch, and Adam Rothenberg. BoxGroup invests in the pre-seed and seed rounds of financing for early stage companies. BoxGroup's goal is to invest at the earliest stage. Early stage fundraising has taken on many names - friends & family round, pre-seed, seed, etc and we're open to all of them. We're comfortable with what early means - a lot of assumptions, more vision than traction, and raw product. We support companies based on conviction in the team. We believe in "founder market fit" - the concept that certain teams are able to unlock specific markets. This is the first step to get to "product market fit." Ideas tend not to be equal opportunity which means that it requires the right team to bring a vision to life. We hope technology can be a catalyst for positive change and progress. We look for entrepreneurs working at the beginning of movements in existing markets or new markets yet to be created and with visions to create the next generation of category defining businesses. Lastly, companies are borne out of leadership. The strongest leaders display paired values and we seek out: humility with audacity, genius with hustle, curiosity with authenticity, honesty with salesmanship, and wacky with pragmatic.
