Oceans is a venture capital firm focused on early-stage startups in New York City.

We are a new kind of venture capital firm: a team of early-stage investors and mentors focused on giving startups the hands-on support they need to succeed. We started Oceans because founders kept approaching us individually to ask for help − they had capital but wanted guidance from people who had lived the journey.

Steven built Quattro Wireless from the bottom up through to acquisition by Apple and led the pivotal transformation of Foursquare.

Josh played an instrumental role in establishing Facebook’s first satellite office in NYC and helped launch several key early products.

Glenn architected world class teams and opened up Sales / Marketing and Engineering offices globally for Facebook and Google.

Sara ran engagements, designed and implemented software solutions, and built and led global development teams at software companies such as ClearForest, acquired by Thomson Reuters.

And Brian led corporate development and M&A efforts across the Time Warner ecosystem, including acquiring startups and putting over $3 billion of capital to work. Drawing on this depth and breadth of experience, we team together to serve as an “inner circle” to founders.
