Beyond Investing.

Capital  |  Connections  | Community


We invest in people. We invest in leading-edge ideas.

The PS27 Rhea Fund, a 20M venture capital fund, focuses on investment opportunities in early-stage SaaS, HealthTech, FinTech, and E-commerce that can scale rapidly. The Rhea Fund plans to invest in 20 to 30 companies. We’re looking for entrepreneurs who are seeking growth capital. We’re also looking for the right market fit, the right team chemistry, and the right leaders to partner with. Our mission also includes working with founders who are women, veterans, and people of color.
