Erie Strategic Ventures will invest across the personal and commercial insurance value chain as well as natural adjacencies that offer potential to deliver value to ERIE customers and agents.

Ultimately, investments will enhance ERIE’s existing value proposition, support our independent agent base and allow ERIE to explore new growth opportunities that complement our business model.


While we are primarily focused on early-stage capital investments, it doesn’t matter what stage of building out your business you are in.


We invest globally with an emphasis on North America.

Investment Size

Based on stage, the typical investment will range from $1M to $3M+. We reserve capital for future financing rounds and are flexible on leading or participating in rounds.
