CrowdVentures begins in 2015 when founding partners Duncan Abdelnour & Lawrence Helfant created the first portfolio company, CrowdSync
Technology. The mission of CrowdSync is simple – To create powerful event experiences through our wearable technologies.
To further scale, Duncan & Lawrence recruit Christopher Foote as a Partner to create CrowdHealth to be purely focused on healthcare. Upon
seeing immediate successes in working together, the partners reinvested to launch our first software company in CrowdPass.
With three portfolio companies and three partners to manage and scale each, we’re ready to create our fourth company, CrowdVentures.
