Industry specialization: Our partnership invests across enterprise, consumer, health care IT, and enabling/emerging technology companies.
Deal range: Pritzker invests in the range of $3 million to $8 million into a round of capital (typically Series A or B rounds). It also opportunistically deploys smaller amounts of capital (up to $1 million) into earlier stage companies. Although we aim to invest $15 million to $20 million over the life of an investment in a company, Pritzker has the flexibility to deploy up to $50 million in any one company.
Recent transactions: Pritzker has been increasing its presence in Los Angeles over several years and has invested in more than 20 L.A.-area companies, including Dollar Shave Club, Honest Co., Hello Giggles, AwesomenessTV, BigFrame, Pluto.TV, and Airmap. The most recent local investment was in Joymode. A few recent investments outside of Los Angeles include X.ai, IrisVR, AiCure, CultureIQ, and Augury in New York, and Catalytic, Interior Define, and G2 Crowd in Chicago.
