About Inventus

Inventus Capital was founded by successful entrepreneurs & early-stage VCs with a Founder-first approach.  Initially, our cross-border funds backed entrepreneurs in both Silicon Valley & India.  As we move forward, we’re simplifying and expanding Inventus with a pure play early-stage Silicon Valley fund and a pure play early-stage India fund.   Last fall, our first Inventus Co-Invest Fund was oversubscribed in support of our breakout Silicon Valley companies. 

So far, Inventus has backed 40 Founding teams, about half in Silicon Valley, resulting in defining companies like Poshmark, Credit Sesame and Sierra Atlantic in Silicon Valley; redBus, Policy Bazaar and Power2SME in India; with dozens more on similar tracks towards category leadership.

Inventus GPs have been early stage investors thru cycles since the 1990’s.  We founded Inventus in 2008 to continue a model that enables Founders to own a significant share of the company from start to finish.  We like that alignment, and the candor and focus it enables with our entrepreneurs.  We’ve written the first institutional check to over 100 Founding teams leading to dozens of successful outcomes for both Founders and shareholders.
