Andrew Bartholomew

Founder and Managing Partner

Andrew Bartholomew is the Founder and Managing Partner of Fulcrum Venture Group, leveraging his extensive experience and networks in both national security and finance to drive innovation in the defense sector. He launched Fulcrum in 2024 to bridge the gap between private capital and entrepreneurs developing critical solutions to our nation’s most pressing security challenges.

Before founding Fulcrum, Andrew served as a Director at Fortress Investment Group, a leading alternative asset manager. In this role, he was responsible for sourcing, originating, and executing high-yield and distressed commercial real estate transactions. His previous experience includes working as an Analyst in Evercore’s Transportation and Infrastructure M&A Advisory practice, where he honed his skills in strategic financial advisory.

Andrew's career began with his service as an enlisted Infantryman in the United States Marine Corps. He deployed multiple times to Iraq and Afghanistan, gaining firsthand combat experience that helps inform his strategic approach to investment in defense technologies. This unique blend of frontline military experience and high-level financial expertise positions Andrew to identify and support transformative technologies in the defense and defense-adjacent sectors.
