TheVentureCity’s mission is to support the best early-stage software businesses with capital and operational expertise. We do so by investing in fast-growing Seed & Series A software companies with the potential to generate $100M annual revenues in 7-8 years. We look for companies that are capital efficient and follow a product-led growth methodology . We target emerging tech hubs in the United States and Europe that have highly productive and specialized talent but do not have enough venture capital investment.
We are a group of international executives with experience in growing technology companies globally. We leverage our operational expertise and investment experience to help the best founders scale their businesses to extraordinary heights.
Our venture capital fund is part of a greater firm: TheVentureCity, which employs a team of operational experts (Engineers, Product Managers, Data Scientists, and Growth. See “2.0 Management Team”). This type of talent not only attracts the best entrepreneurs but also increases the probability of success for our portfolio companies. This lowers the risk of our investments and increases our ability to deliver greater returns.
Furthermore, TheVentureCity has invested in several startups such as: Nalej, Boatsetter, Returnly, Fastmind, Jobartis, Cabify, Finconecta, Fluvip, Hogaru, Enjoy HQ, Optimus Ride, Pixlee, SpotaHome, Glamping Hub, Playground, RecargaPay, Rocket, Levee, Bewe y, como acabas de publicar (gracias), SimpliRoute. At the same time, this vehicle has raised -until now-, Fund I of 50 millions of euro.
