about core capital
Founded in 1999, Core Capital is a leading venture capital firm headquartered in downtown Washington, D.C. with approximately $350 million under management across two funds.
Core Capital invests in early-stage ventures and small to mid-sized growth companies developing or incorporating disruptive, “core” technologies in high-growth technology sectors. Our focus is on companies in the information technology, communications, digital media, and technology-enabled services arenas, led by seasoned entrepreneurs. Representative investments include Sourcefire (NASDAQ: FIRE), Inlet Technologies (acquired by Cisco), SwapDrive (acquired by Symantec), IXI Corporation (acquired by Equifax), SilverStorm (acquired by QLogic), Roundbox, Twisted Pair Solutions, BridgeWave Communications, UpdateLogic and Infinite Power Solutions.
The firm's partners have been active investors for over 25 years, investing across both up and down economic cycles, and because of their experience in Washington, provide exceptional insight to companies who also derive revenues from the world’s largest purchaser of technology–the Government.
Core has invested in 45 companies and is actively involved with its portfolio. With over 100 collective career investments, our partners’ purpose is to apply broad operational and venture capital experience to identify and assist our portfolio companies in becoming market-leading businesses. We partner closely with entrepreneurs and believe we can significantly affect growth trajectory and profitability through proactive operational participation and Board of Directors involvement.
