- Illuminate Ventures invests in early-stage high-tech companies leveraging cloud computing and mobile technologies
Illuminate Ventures is an early-stage VC focused exclusively on enterprise cloud-computing companies. We don’t rely on “pattern recognition” or following the herd. Our sweet spot is as the first institutional investor leading $1-3 million priced rounds of financing. Our team is made up of experienced investors with prior operational success, complemented by a world class, 40+ Business Advisory Council. We’ve been there ourselves and work closely with founders to support them in building truly great companies and teams.
Illuminate’s results speak for themselves. As an early investor in companies like BrightEdge and Xactly, we have helped them grow their revenue from zero to tens of millions. Prior successful exits as both founders and investors include Vivant (acq EVLV/ORCL), Scopus (IPO), WildPockets (acq ADSK).
