Our Companies

When Bullpen Capital launched 10 years ago, our goal was to back overlooked entrepreneurs left behind by the latest Silicon Valley fads.  Since then, without compromising on that vision, we have invested in 100+ startups.

Our portfolio spans all categories (even those underappreciated ones), from fantasy sports to data center equipment to restaurant SaaS.  Our companies are started by diverse founders who discovered product-market fit early on and exhibit the perseverance to become market leaders through accelerating operating performance.

At Beryllium, we believe that access to trading should be expanded beyond just the traditional markets. Our aim is to ensure that users, across all sectors and industries, are able to trade in a digital native, experience-driven manner. We built the Beryllium platform knowing that we will not know how far-reaching our product will be. As we start our journey with fantasy sports as our first venture, we know that this is just the beginning. The Beryllium platform is infinitely scalable, and we will continue to ensure that trading is ubiquitous across all sectors.
