About Inventus

We’ve been the first investors in scores of successful startups, including 7 Unicorns, two of which had multi-Unicorn IPOs in 2021.  We invest early, and with high conviction, providing as much as $3 million in Seed capital to finance the runway and resources required to attract a meaningful Series A and rapidly scale. We are coaches and collaborators, not referees. We’ve all been successful entrepreneurs with blue chip operating careers in leading Silicon Valley companies. And we have a network of 100s of Global 5000 CXOs with express interest in being customers and partners of  new companies that solve the hard problems their companies and colleagues are facing. Come work with us, and we’ll work for you.
