Your "MVP"

Magarac Venture Partners is an early-stage venture capital firm based in Pittsburgh, PA. Our firm was founded by Mike Stubler, Jay Katarincic, Zach Malone (former colleagues at Draper Triangle Ventures) and Will Allen.

At MVP we are proud to invest in the Midwest's most extraordinary entrepreneurs as they set out to create market defining companies. We view venture investing as a "People first" business. Our goal is to be your "MVP" by empowering bold, forward-thinking founders with capital and resources on their journey to shape the future.

Sector Focus

We focus our investments on sectors that showcase the strengths of the technology ecosystem in the Midwest.

Stage Focus

Our initial investments can fall between $500k - $5M. We are often the first institutional investors and prefer to lead "Seed" and "Series A" rounds.

Geographical Focus

We believe the Midwest of the United States is home to many of the most talented entrepreneurs in the world. This is why we invest in founders building market defining companies based in cities like Pittsburgh, Columbus, Ann Arbor, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Detroit and other surrounding regions.

Diversity Commitment

33% of the portfolio companies in our most recent fund had at least one person of color, female, immigrant and / or LGBTQ member of the founding team at the time of our investment. We aim to improve this amount moving forward.

"Rooney" Rule

Prior to making an investment our portfolio founders must commit to interviewing at least one African American, person of color, female, first generation immigrant and / or LGBTQ candidate for each senior-level position
