ABOUT VECTORPOINT VENTURES

OVERVIEW

VectorPoint Ventures is a seed stage through growth stage purpose-driven impact venture firm and advisory practice. We are focused on life sciences & health and clean technology sector companies that are primarily based in the greater Northwest region.

Motivated to make a positive difference in the world with our work, VectorPoint’s team accelerates emerging companies that are addressing some of society’s most pressing challenges. We collaborate with seed, early and growth stage companies that have or we believe will have a positive measureable social and/or environmental impact in the United States and the world through their products or services.

We seek to work with motivated entrepreneurs leading exciting companies that develop or apply innovative technologies or approaches to products, systems and services. VectorPoint’s team brings more than capital to the table by also advising and mentoring company teams at all stages of development. Our core team, sector advisors and other resources in our network bring additional value
to companies we work with, before and after they may become a portfolio company. 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 3-8 years.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

We seek to valued and trusted partner with and invest in some of the best social and/or environmental impact growth companies in the Northwestern US and some companies from other regions. We also seek to deliver superior investment returns for our limited partners while doing good by catalyzing and accelerating the development of businesses that create lasting positive social and/or environmental impact in the world. The following guiding principles help define who we are and how we operate:

TRUST

We are honest, straightforward and accountable and expect the same of others that we work with.

PERFORMANCE

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.

PROFESSIONALISM

We value leadership, initiative, creativity and courage.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Like the business leaders with whom we partner, we have a passion for entrepreneurship.

COLLABORATION

We encourage teamwork and camaraderie.  We seek to create an environment in which our colleagues can excel.

DILIGENCE AND TENACITY

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

SERVICE

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.

DIVERSITY

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.

GROWING THE NEXT GENERATION

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.
