Dreamit Ventures is a venture capital firm and accelerator that primarily operates in the realms of Health Tech, Urban Tech, and Secure Tech. Dreamit operates on a global scale, having partnered with over 320 startups from around the world.

Unlike a traditional accelerator, Dreamit does not have a set program duration, but instead works on a rolling basis. Startups can apply for Dreamit at any time and once in, are provided with resources, mentorship, and opportunities for networking for as long as they need. The goal is to help the startups secure Series A funding.

Dreamit has had a variety of success stories. Among them is HouseParty, formerly known as Meerkat, a social networking service that enables group video chatting through mobile and desktop applications. After its experiences in Dreamit's accelerator program, HouseParty was able to secure over $70 million in funding and was eventually acquired by Epic Games, the creator of Fortnite.

Another success story from Dreamit is SeatGeek, a mobile-focused ticket platform that enables users to buy and sell tickets for sports, concerts, and theater events. After going through Dreamit's program, SeatGeek went on to raise about $160 million in funding, proving the potential of startups accelerated through Dreamit.

Dreamit's leadership includes CEO Avi Savar, a well-respected figure in the startup and VC ecosystem. Since taking on the role of CEO in 2016, Savar has overseen the successful growth and funding of many Dreamit startups.

Alongside its accelerator program, Dreamit also leads an initiative called Dreamit Dose, where they share weekly videos on topics relevant to startups, such as fundraising, customer acquisition, and product development. This initiative emphasizes Dreamit's commitment to educating startups.

In terms of particularities, one notable aspect of Dreamit is its 'no equity' policy. Unlike other accelerators and venture capital firms, Dreamit does not take equity from start-ups until a Series A funding round is completed, allowing businesses to retain full control of their operation while they are in the growth stage.
