About Us
Bleeding-edge Creators:

Co-Founders and Managing Partners, Katya Kohen and Diego Berrio, founded 13V through a shared interest in supporting exciting Consumer brands.

Katya draws from her experience as the Co-Founder and Partner at Starta Ventures, which has amassed a portfolio of 100+ early-stage startups with $90M in VC funding and crypto assets. Under her guidance, Starta Ventures achieved its first exit within two (2) years of deploying capital providing a 10x return; Starta later achieved four (4) exits within three (3) years of the fund's launch.

Diego created his Family Office, focusing on CPG investments. As a Portfolio Manager at Bricapital, a Hospitality-centric Private Equity fund, he focused on investing in Hospitality and e-Learning. In 2017, he became the EIR for Hardware Club, a Venture Capital fund with offices in Paris, San Francisco, and Tokyo. 13V carries Consumer brand focus and excellence in its DNA.

13 Ventures is an employee owned company.

In some cases, 13 Ventures is available to deploy human capital to help ensure the smooth transition to the anticipated growth position.


Late Stage Strategy
We are committed to garnering value for the companies that employ our Advisory services, especially during the consideration of an exit. We are committed to achieve the most successful, profitable path forward, whether it be through M&A or the Capital Markets.
