PointGuard Ventures is an early-stage technology "mentor" capital firm. We don't just invest — we build with you.
We seek out entrepreneurs using technology to create new market opportunities or solve problems in existing markets more cost effectively. We see our role in this process as the team advisor or coach and we see the CEO as the "point guard" driving the execution of the team.
Our areas of interest are reasonably broad, but we are passionate about compelling, defensible solutions built leveraging multiple converging technologies in today's market.
We typically invest in Series A and early Series B stage companies with product-market validation, a defined sales strategy, and any potential IP protection.
We invest $2M - $10M into any one company and will invest $10M+ in select deals over its lifetime — bringing in additional capital from our strategic partners as needed.
We are a seasoned team of operators and investors with the experience to help startups at any stage.
