Investment Partners

We bring the value of connections to every partnership.

For some, we’re a source of highly qualified deal flow. For others, we’re a vehicle for multiple-bottom-line growth or achieving growth objectives unique to industries, institutions, or communities. For all, we are a connecting force. Ben Franklin actively curates a community of investors throughout the region, nation, and world in order to share the opportunities that emerge here every day.

GO Philly Fund

In partnership with EPAM, the Global Opportunity Philadelphia Fund (GO Philly Fund) leverages blockchain technology as part of its innovative fundraising and capital management strategy. This helps facilitate investor participation in the burgeoning opportunities that surround technology-based ventures within the Philadelphia region.

Investment Partnerships

Whether focused on impact, region, sector, or institution-focused goals, our investment partnerships strengthen our partner organizations and support shared objectives by leveraging Ben Franklin’s best-in-class practices for investment in and support for early-stage companies. Each deploys capital both from partners and Ben Franklin, and connects companies and partners to our larger network of resources, sharing each partner’s mission throughout the region and beyond while garnering shared desired outcomes with visibility and impact.


Ben Franklin actively engages the most active and celebrated investors of our region and nation, supporting their pipeline growth for our shared success and elevating the growth of our companies. We actively cultivate the community of investment, both with our long-standing relationships with institutional and individual investors and partnerships with organizations like PACT and Draper Venture Network. We work daily with VC’s, angel groups, corporate and private foundations, and family offices, all of whom need a partner to help them discover the most promising opportunities.
