Welcome to the Minuteman Venture Club

For Boston's Entrepreneurs

Join Your Fellow Boston Entrepreneurs

We are a venture investing club for Boston area entrepreneurs and friends. Together we evaluate venture deals, share insights and network with one another. Then each member has the opportunity to make an independent investment decision. It’s your portfolio, your decision.

This is a smart, simple way to own an asset class missing from many investors’ portfolios – and there’s no charge to be a member.
