Compelling ideas … big markets
We want to work with company founders who have set their sights high and we seek innovators who combine a bold technology vision with the drive and dedication needed to see a technology start-up through the challenges it will face in executing its plans.
We expect companies we invest in to have an impact. We look for companies that could end up with a value not in the tens of millions of dollars, but in the hundreds of millions – within three to five years.
Early-stage development; technological risks
The nucleus of a strong technical team
Geographic proximity; hands-on involvement
Fields outside our expertise and interest
Money, hands-on assistance,
contacts and more
While it is certainly true that a good venture capitalist provides much more than cash, we know that the primary reason you’re approaching us is to get the money you need to grow your business – or to create a business based on your technology.
We manage over $95 million in venture capital funds, and more than two-thirds of this money is available for future investments. Typically, we invest $500,000 to $2 million in a company’s seed round, and then continue to support the company through follow-on investments. We have the ability to invest up to $9 million in each of our portfolio companies.
The money is the simple part. We can cut a cheque very quickly when the right opportunity comes along.
But most of the value we bring to a company goes far beyond writing a cheque. When you work with Tech Capital, you benefit from our team’s experience and knowledge and our network of industry contacts worldwide.
Hands-on guidance and support
Our team has experience leading successful high-tech startups and knowledge gained from having helped build many technology companies.
Whether it’s recruiting a management team, clarifying company strategy, financial planning, establishing business partnerships and alliances, working through management issues or just being a sounding board for your ideas, we’ll be with you every step of the way in working through the challenges start-ups inevitably face.
Our contacts are your contacts
We have a broad network of existing relationships with lawyers, recruiters, accountants, bankers, financial service firms and IT service providers.
