At Ventures, we invest in entrepreneurs who are shaking up large, established industries to imagine a different future.

01

We don’t invest in the latest buzzword or the most hyped technology. Instead, we invest in businesses using software to solve real world problems.

02

We focus on early-seed rounds. It’s what we know and love and where we provide the most value.

03

We surround our companies with a team of seasoned entrepreneurs to help every step of the way.

You are an entrepreneur who questions everything. You tinker relentlessly. You want to build applications to solve real world problems, not to ride the wave of the next hot thing. The humbly bold. The data-driven rebel.

We are successful entrepreneurs turned early-stage investors. We’ve built products, engineering teams, data centers - and even the occasional IKEA desk in some of the valley’s leading companies.
