Trailblazing Investor Launches Own VC Firm, Type Capital

The former GV partner plans to cut checks for pre-seed and seed-stage investments through her early-stage venture capital firm.

Terri Burns, formerly a partner at Google Ventures, has launched Type Capital, her very own early-stage venture capital firm.

As stated on its official website, Type Capital aims to invest in trailblazing founders pushing the boundaries of social and technological innovation. According to Tech Crunch‘s report, Burns has etched her name among the select few Black women who have established their own venture firms, with her company planning to cut checks for pre-seed and seed-stage investments.

Burns has set her sights on Gen Z founders, digital consumer companies, developer tools, and artificial intelligence, aspiring to be the first investor on board, contrary to other other investors that she said wait to see if a company is worth an investment. Her goal is to identify promising founders and leverage her vast network to facilitate subsequent investment opportunities.

Tech Crunch highlighted that Burns played an instrumental role in several of the firm’s successful investments during her tenure at GV. She spearheaded the investment into the social app HAGS, which was later acquired by Snapchat. She was involved in Partiful, which further cemented her reputation. The angel investor also co-founded an angel investment collective that has invested in nearly a dozen companies.
