problems need patient venture
A short term investment approach leads to early exits. Lack of late stage investment results in growth slowing down. We back our founders for the long term and help them reach large institutional investors when the time is right.
What are you building?
Building a generation-defining company requires a lot of time, energy and funding. We focus on three different types of tech company: platform, deep tech and sales engine.
We aim to optimise the long-term funding journey based on these types. We seek capable, driven founders that can articulate their future. Learning from our experience, here’s the journey we expect these business types to take:
What are we looking for?
- Founders that want to build a generation-defining business; re-shape an industry; or build entirely new ways of doing things.
- Companies raising enough funding to fulfil their true ambition.
- Companies with a CTO / Tech Lead as part of the founding team.
- Teams sufficiently incentivised (through equity) for the long term journeys they’re going on.
- A story which articulates your unit economics and vision in action.
Founders shouldn’t have to spend 6-9 months fundraising at each round. Instead, they should use their skills to scale their company. We operate an efficient, fast, collaborative and transparent investment flow, so founders can take care of business. Familiarising yourself with our approach below will help us get to an investment decision in 4-6 weeks. Get in touch / register on: https://www.venturemarket.org/
