“We’ve always thought about The Foundry Network a bit differently than other firms and recognize that as partners, our role isn’t to control the network (or have connections all run through us), but rather to foster an interconnectedness between and among our community. We are truly greater than the sum of our parts.”
Seth Levine is a partner at Foundry and is a co-founder of the firm. The intersection of community and business has always been a driving force for Seth. He co-founded Pledge 1%, a global network of companies who have pledged equity, time, and product back to their local communities. He is on the board of StartupColorado, which promotes entrepreneurship in areas of Colorado outside of the front range. He is also a Trustee of Macalester College in St. Paul, MN, where he helped found their entrepreneurship program as well as a popular student hackathon (the “Macathon”).
Easily distracted and a passionate advocate for entrepreneurship, in addition to his day job working with companies and funds at Foundry, Seth spends time as an advisor to venture funds and companies around the globe – especially in the Middle East and Africa – to help promote entrepreneurship and economic development.
In 2021, he released The New Builders: Face to Face with the True Future of Business, a book he co-authored with Elizabeth MacBride about the increasingly diverse future of entrepreneurship in America.
A passionate cyclist, above-average skier, and general fan of all things outdoors, Seth and his wife live in Colorado with their three children.
