Sesame Ventures – Helping Launch Mission-Aligned Startups

Sesame Workshop is always searching for ways to help children grow smarter, stronger, and kinder. With Sesame Ventures, we can aid entrepreneurs whose work closely aligns with that mission – and help more children in the process.

Sesame Ventures will partner with the best emerging companies innovating in education, health, and social welfare for children. Besides investment capital, Sesame Ventures portfolio companies will have access to Sesame Workshop’s expertise in early childhood development, research, kid-centric design thinking, and whole-child curriculum accumulated over nearly five decades of child-focused advancement.


Collab+Sesame is our first fund and operates in partnership with Collaborative Fund, an early stage investment firm that shares our vision to change children’s lives. Collab+Sesame will support the companies it invests in through strategic guidance,operational support, and by leveraging our experience and extensive networks.
