We Stand For … New Businesses and Winning Ideas

Comcast Ventures’ Catalyst Fund invests in diverse founders building transformational businesses in media and technology. The team is committed to the success of the businesses it invests in, mentoring and supporting founders, and opening doors to opportunity.

One example is ROSS Intelligence, a Catalyst Fund portfolio company that has developed an advanced legal research tool that harnesses the power of artificial intelligence. The company’s co-founders appreciated that Catalyst Fund saw an investment in them as an investment that would impact the world, not just a specific minority group.

According to ROSS Intelligence, diverse startups can be undervalued due to bias in the business world. But Catalyst Fund represents a new path to capital where conscious inclusion is a priority.    

We connected with Catalyst Fund’s approach — they don’t support us just because we’re diverse, they support us because our diverse perspectives make us better at solving complex business challenges.
