Investment and Advice from The Trenches
Founded on the belief that early-stage companies need more than capital, C2 Ventures provides capital, content, time and experience to provide first-in-class service to our founders.
Established in 2014, C2 Ventures launched C2V Capital Partners I, our first institutional venture capital fund in 2019. We look for companies building enterprise software and robotics solutions for legacy industries with a direct, positive ROI via improvements in productivity, capital efficiency, and profit margins, as well as clean-tech/sustainability solutions with defensible IP and clear customer use cases.
We seek to maximize these investments by providing consistent, active support to our founders, lending the expertise, time, and experience of our two General Partners, as well as our LP Operator Bench of successful entrepreneurs and tech executives who, consistent with C2V’s mission, have pledged their time and experience in addition to their capital to support the success of our incredible founders.
