Taihill Venture

Shaping Our Future Today

About Us

We are a group of young emerging leaders, who are eager to grow with entrepreneurs. We are committed to fulfilling our vision of partnering with entrepreneurs that make change and history. We bring the future to the present by investing into breakthrough technologies and supporting extraordinary entrepreneurs.

In 2014, through a strong local network in the Boston area, our partners began doing angel investments in emerging technologies that represent progressive innovations. Skylight Investment was then established as our first VC fund in Boston in 2017, and we have since invested in over 60 companies.

After the success of Skylight, we launched our second fund in May 2020, and formally renamed it Taihill Venture.

As an early-stage and sector agnostic fund, we invest in a wide array of disruptive and impactful startups positioning us on the forefront of the evolving landscape of technology innovations. Having a diverse team of resourceful partners and advisors brings boundless vision and networks from across the globe.
