Investing in the

Transformative Age of Software

 

 

Seven Peaks Ventures was founded on the core thesis that software driven technologies are fundamentally transforming every business and changing human lives. Innovation driven by computer science and machine learning is at the core of the new digital enterprise, personalized medicine, virtual reality, and the next generation of IT infrastructure. We believe that many of the most successful startups will increasingly come from markets outside of Silicon Valley. Conditions for entrepreneurs to build and grow those businesses has never been better.

 

 

Our Approach

Support the Startup Community

 

Our job is to be a supportive member of the startup communities that we are investing in. We connect with entrepreneurs in those communities through Seven Peaks hosted events and forums, where entrepreneurs share experiences and learn from each other. We also support other events and projects that help startup ecosystems take shape and grow.

 

Invest Early with Conviction

 

 

Invest early in founding teams who have a maniacal focus on product and customers and who truly want to build lasting businesses of scale in markets undergoing high growth, change, and technological transitions.  These conditions most often lead to the creation of new category leaders.

Lean In

 

 

Our Partners leverage years of deep operating experience to help our entrepreneurs make the critical decisions that lead to strong product-market-fit and scale. We “get in the foxhole” with you and are by your side throughout your journey in building and scaling your business.

 

Tenaciously Solve Problems

 

 

We operate with the belief that startups, management teams, and boards should be “problem solving machines”. We are committed to working tirelessly to help our entrepreneurs overcome obstacles and navigate the terrain that often throws companies off course.

 

Make Connections

 

We have deep networks in the industries we invest in – including the C-Suite of large tech and Fortune 500 companies, the greater venture capital industry and broader capital markets. We leverage these connections to bring unique access and resources to our startups. Through our network, we help entrepreneurs with market development, operational scaling, future fundraising, and M&A.
