ABOUT US

The TRITON Story

The TRITON Story

TRITON FUNDS was started by three undergraduate students from Southern California aspiring to create an investment fund with a millennial touch. Our journey began in search of investors willing to back our idea of a student-run fund that creates a greater sense of community through investments in local companies and entrepreneurs, philanthropy, and guidance to fellow college students interested in the finance field. As a result, local limited partners, coupled with the support of our advisory board, helped us establish TRITON FUNDS, creating real-world opportunities for college students to invest in growing companies.

TEAM

Our investment staff works together as a single, global unit to evaluate and support potential investments.
Every portfolio company — before, during and after we invest — will work with a dedicated team of experts to help it grow.
