Corporate information

Registration country


XG Ventures® was founded in March 2008 by ex-Googlers, who were early hires in strategic roles at Google. Pietro Dova and Andrea Zurek are the managing members of XG Ventures and are dedicated to advising and investing in supremely talented early stage teams. We learned a great deal at Google, including how its unique culture shaped a dynamic and fun enterprise. Together, with our complementary expertise, our goal is to help successfully guide the start-up teams, in which we invest and advise, to the next stage. We provide operational and strategic guidance, mentorship, global networking contacts, and access to seed capital and beyond. XG Ventures® invests in early, seed-stage opportunities across a variety of sectors in both B2C and B2B. Examples of these sectors include mobile, e-commerce, enterprise, consumer and SaaS-based businesses. We look for exceptional teams focusing on innovative products or services.
