    Brooklyn Bridge Ventures seeks to make investments in early and seed stage technology companies in the 'Greater Brooklyn Area' (which includes Manhattan and other boroughs) across a variety of information technology sectors. Brooklyn Bridge Ventures leads or co-leads investments of around $250,000 in the New York City area, aiming to be part of the first $750,000 a startup raises. It will also have the capability to lead or co-lead seed rounds and will be based out of the NYU-Poly Incubator in DUMBO. Founder, Charlie O'Donnell, has been an active member of the NYC venture capital and startup community for ten years in roles ranging from institutional fund investor to venture capitalist to entrepreneur-- with a little product management in between. He has venture experience at two of the top venture capital firms in the country, Union Square Ventures and First Round Capital, and sourced First Round's Investment in GroupMe, which sold to Skype in 2011. The investments he sourced at First Round Capital also include Refinery29, chloe + isabel, Backupify, SinglePlatform, Salescrunch and Docracy.
