Based in Silicon Valley, they focus on early-stage companies that require relatively small amounts of capital to achieve success. While most venture firms have grown too large to invest as little as $250,000 to $1 million in a financing round, Startup Capital Ventures targets investments in this range. The firm leverages its investment with unparalleled operations experience from a team of seasoned professionals. Generally, we target capital efficient companies, such as software, that are generating some revenue and can show a reasonable likelihood of reaching near-term profitability from their investment.
Our approach is to build a supportive partnership around an outstanding entrepreneurial team with a clear market vision for its product or service. We focus on investing in strong management teams, not just technologies and strive to build a supportive working relationship with their portfolio companies based on flexibility, integrity, and patience.
We know firsthand the hard work and challenges of building successful companies. A hallmark of our strategy is the ability to deliver deep domain expertise to each of their portfolio companies, which also reduces investment risk for their limited partner investors.
An extensive network of strategic contacts and their presence in the US and Asia can make a difference in how rapidly our companies achieve critical milestones. Our philosophy includes not only a commitment to the portfolio companies, but also a goal of creating industry leading companies for the long term.
Our geographic focus is principally Silicon Valley as well as Hawaii, Texas, and Oklahoma, where the firm has extensive relationships through its limited partner base.
