ONSET Ventures

At ONSET, they believe in collaboration. Over 20 years of experience tells them that companies have a greater chance of success when guided by people who have built similar businesses before. Venture craftsmanship is a hands-on, personal collaboration.

ONSET always engages with a commitment to help entrepreneurs develop business strategies and solve the problems companies face at all stages of growth. They invest in fewer companies so they are able to actively support each partner with their proven venture craftsmanship approach. It means they are ready to tackle every issue—from finding a great CTO or planning a clinical trial strategy, to developing a business model and building an effective partner network.
