BuildGroup is a venture investment and holding company, founded in Austin, TX, in 2015, by Klee Kleber, Peter Freeland, Jim Curry, and Lanham Napier. They back founders who are ambitious enough to want to make a dent in the universe and humble enough to realize they can’t do it alone.
A software holding company that selectively invests in leadership teams with staying power, they provide permanent capital from aligned investors and by avoiding forced exits, BuildGroup frees entrepreneurs to focus on serving customers instead of raising the next round. They believe that great businesses are built, not bought.
In July, 2019, BuildGroup announced that it was leading a $25M Series B round for New York-based video ad startup VidMob. The company's tech stack helps marketers develop high quality ads with a team of content creators and data tech to improve the reach of campaigns.
