Inventus Capital was founded in 2007 by successful Silicon Valley entrepreneurs & early-stage VCs with a Founder-first philosophy. The GPs have backed nearly 90 Founders to date, typically at the Seed or early-Series A stage, and invest with high conviction behind a very select number of new teams each year.
Over the past 10 years, Inventus has helped Silicon Valley founders grow from early-stage startups into meaningful companies with aggregate annual sales of over $1 Billion today. Notable Inventus companies include Poshmark in the $330 billion fashion industry, Credit Sesame in the $500 billion consumer credit & finance markets, Sierra Atlantic in the $100 billion outsourced product development industry and Vivu in the $150 billion business communications market.
Investment themes include online consumer marketplaces and business automation software, but the Inventus GPs are particularly interested in backing Founders with a unique and often surprising vision for re-ordering industries and re-inventing consumer experiences for the digital age.
