We strive to
become strategic

We invest in early-stage
growth-oriented companies.

We take a portfolio-management approach to investment strategy.  We invest on
themes, but our thesis evolves with market trends and insights on emerging trends we
identify together with Point B Consulting experts. Current investment themes include:

  • Transformative and disruptive innovations that leverage the economics of cloud-based and mobile computing infrastructure and technologies in industry verticals such as:
    • Energy Management
    • Retail
    • Transportation
    • Financial Services
    • Healthcare
    • Professional Services
  • Enabling and platform-oriented technologies that extend the power of mobile services beyond current mobile infrastructure capabilities.
  • Professional Services offerings that strategically complement current and emerging Point B Management Consulting core competencies and client base.

Our target investments are companies who have developed an early version of an offering. They may be addressing the challenge of market-validating the offering, honing their Go to Market strategy, or preparing to scale their business.  Our deal flow comes through our management team’s US-based networks, our involvement in angel and venture capital communities west of Chicago, and from our connections to Point B Consulting.  Typically, we first invest in Series A or late seed-stage rounds, then participate in follow-on rounds.  We favor thoughtfully-assembled syndicates and will lead or follow on term sheets.

We do not sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) as it would impair our ability to remain independent in evaluating other companies, which as a venture capital fund, is what we do.  Please know we confidentially treat all information we receive from prospective companies.
