The best early-stage, East Coast VCs focusing on information technology (internet/software) are generally considered to be:

  • Union Square Ventures
  • Highland

  • Bessemer
  • General Catalyst
  • Matrix

  • Spark
  • Charles River
  • Atlas

  • RRE
  • Polaris

Seed funds (or "super angels") based in East Coast include:
- Betaworks
- IA Ventures
- First Round (hybrid seed and Series A)
- Founder Collective (disclosure: I am co-founder)
- Lerer Ventures
- Thrive Capital

In addition, many West Coast and European VCs are actively investing on the East Coast now, especially in NYC. These include:
- Index Ventures
- Accel
- Sequoia
- Redpoint
- Greylock
- Benchmark
- Kleiner Perkins

  • And some new seed funds in Boston include NextView Ventures, Project11 and RedStar(very stealthy). – Mike Walsh 13 years ago


There are plenty of VC's in Boston.

Here's a short list of High Tech VC's just off the top of my head.

Many west coast VC's have offices in the Boston area (e.g. Google Ventures which just funded SCVNGR and Hubspot).
