Daring Journey Ventures ('DJV') is a seed investment firm focused on early stage tech companies mainly within the NYC area. The firm was founded in 2012 by entrepreneur turned investor Jos White to take advantage of New York's emergence as one of the world's most dynamic markets for tech start-ups.
DJV invests at an early stage (so called 'seed') and looks for start-ups with great teams and tremendous potential. Jos is a big believer that an investment is both a long-term and a two-way commitment. In this way DJV is committed to helping its companies to be successful in any way it can – this is fuelled through Jos's experience as an entrepreneur and also by investing in companies that are close by.
Jos received a BA honours degree in English Literature from London University and divides his time between New York and London."
