VectorPoint Ventures is developing a balanced and diversified portfolio of investments in well managed early stage and growth stage companies.  We seek to be a valued and trusted partner to portfolio company management teams and fellow stakeholders, and to deliver superior returns to our investors.  We primarily focus on early stage and emerging growth companies that are headquartered in the Northwestern US.  We look for companies that develop or apply innovative technologies or approaches to products, systems and services.  We prefer to partner to finance and advise companies that are nearing or at an inflection point before a period of significant company growth.  We have a mid-term liquidity focus; therefore we select target portfolio company investment opportunities and structures that have a reasonable likelihood of investment liquidity in 3-7 years.


We seek to invest in some of the best early stage growth stage companies in the Northwestern US, to be a valued and trusted partner to  company management teams and stakeholders, and to deliver superior returns to our investors.


We are honest, straightforward and accountable and expect the same of others that we work with.  We promote intellectual integrity and practice it rigorously when assessing investment opportunities and evaluating results.


We are satisfied only when we perform at the highest levels of our industry.  In order to do so, our firm must be a meritocracy in which each team member contributes meaningfully to our success.  Our reputation for outstanding returns produced honorably is our most valuable asset.


We value leadership, initiative, creativity and courage.


Like the business leaders with whom we partner, we have a passion for entrepreneurship.  We behave like owners, take calculated risks and work for the best interests of the firm, our clients and our investors.


We encourage teamwork and camaraderie.  We seek to create an environment in which our colleagues can excel.  We require respectful and professional behavior from all of our team members.


We believe that there is no substitute for hard work, we are unafraid of difficult situations and we stick to our convictions.


We have the privilege to serve the investors who entrust us with their capital and the entrepreneurs who select us as their partner.  Our service goes beyond our immediate stakeholders to the communities in which we live.


We believe people of all different backgrounds should have the opportunity to participate, shape, and succeed in the founding, funding, and building of technology-driven companies.


We enjoy working with people who are younger and/or think differently, providing mentoring opportunities and helping grow the next generation of leaders and managers.  We believe that they bring some very innovative ideas for today and represent our future.  We are pleased to pass the baton as part of our work.
