At Pier 70, we find and fund disruptive technologies with the potential to shake up the status quo in healthcare. Entrepreneurs choose Pier 70 for capital and counsel, and we help them build diverse teams well-positioned to achieve financial success.

RareBreed Ventures

RareBreed Ventures is a pre-seed fund that invests in exceptional founders outside of large tech ecosystems, earlier than everyone else. Unlike other pre-seed funds, RareBreed takes a concentrated portfolio approach by writing checks of up to $250K as the first or one of the first investors.


We invest in automation for the real economy businesses that are solving problems that affect 99% of people in industries like logistics or construction.

General Catalyst

The GC team embraces our responsibility to create a sense of belonging for all races, genders and backgrounds across our industry, while bearing in mind that as a firm, we must create greater access—to capital, to the critical resources that transform an idea into a sustainable business, and to mentorship.
