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.
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.
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.
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.
Seven Peaks Events
Bonfire is a 3-day event that brings together some of the most promising startups, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and senior tech executives in one location for focused and engaging conversation on topics critical to starting and scaling businesses. It’s also a retreat, so expect to climb a mountain, swing a club, or venture a path you haven’t been down before. A gathering of some of the brightest minds in business, from Silicon Valley and the many emerging tech hubs outside the Valley, Bonfire is just one more reason to visit Bend.
