It’s About Time OC Is Known For More Than Reality TV, Real Estate, and Beaches!


As we say at OC4, “it’s just nicer here”, which is why we’re encouraging more technology entrepreneurs with unprecedented ideas to move to Orange County. The purpose of the OC4 Venture Studio is to help founders build and scale their startups using our 4C’s – Capital, Collision, Coaching & Community. 

Technology company innovators Kyle Kamrooz and Carey Ransom founded OC4 Venture Studio to create a new chapter for the startup ecosystem in SoCal. Not only are we focusing on driving more kickass people to the region, we’re also tapping into the existing talent and potential that’s already here.

We Go Way Beyond Advising

We are first and foremost company builders! We help entrepreneurs build a product that solves big problems, delights the end-user, and becomes a scalable business. Our goal is to walk alongside startups and get shit done.

oc4 selfieOC4 Venture Studio is divided into two categories, a studio, and a venture fund. We work primarily with software companies that center around Data, AI, Cloud, B2B SaaS/PaaS, Fintech and more. So far we’ve invested in 5 companies including Cheese, a company that offers mobile banking and credit for international students, and Chatterworks, a predictive talent recruiting software platform, where the founder helped build a previous company that sold to LinkedIn. 

We know founders need more than just capital because we’ve been there before. We’re not just a co-working space or a venture fund, we are here to get deep in the weeds with entrepreneurs to help tell their stories, build a quality product, provide an excellent user experience (UX), exceed customer expectations and reshape industries!
