We choose founders who choose humanity.

We invest in early-stage entrepreneurs creating visionary technologies that make work more human.

"No other investor really goes out of their way like Roble ... The response speed, my God, is insane!"

Sriharsha Guduguntla

Co-Founder & CEO

"Sergio puts his money where his mouth is in terms of the companies Roble invests in, and I think that is relatively rare. He's always one of the first of my investors to respond to my questions, even when he's on the road. That's really helpful to me as a founder."

Jennifer Dulski

Founder & CEO

"It was really the focus on human enablement, and the commitment to learning the kinds of problems that I've spent my career working on, that drew me to Roble."

Charles Thornburgh

Co-Founder & CEO

"I just had the pleasure of meeting with Roble Ventures, and I feel compelled to say it's been the best investor conversation I've ever had ... You should teach a class that everyone in VC takes."

Lukas Simianer


"I think your venture firm is doing a great job with accessibility, ease of communication, and candid feedback to founders in a friendly way. You are way ahead of the curve."
