Future Back Ventures Closes First Five Investments

Bain & Company

Future Back Ventures (FBV), a San Francisco, CA-based, Bain & Company-backed venture fund focused on investing in early-growth startups founded or led by Bain alumni, closed on its first five investments.

Investments included Vendelux, Common Sense Privacy, Duckbill, HIVED, and Qube. Via these investments, FBV joined a cohort of venture capitalists including Forerunner Ventures, General Catalyst, Greycroft and FirstMark Capital.

Launched in 2023, Future Back Ventures by Bain & Company invests in early stage, Bain Alumni-led companies and provides portfolio companies access to strategic consulting support, talent, community, tools, and resources. It is led by Head of Fund Ann Scott-Plante, who returned to Bain to lead FBV after founding a company of her own.

Bain alumni have been founding companies for decades. There have been more than 40 companies that have achieved $1 billion valuations founded by Bain alumni since the mid-1990s, according to the firm. Companies founded by Bain alumni include BetterUp, Delhivery, Faire, Intuit, Net-a-Porter, Plaid, Riot Games, Xiaohongshu, among others.
