In particular, we are currently interested in following segments:

  • BigData and Analytics - revolutionary technologies and services for managing large scale data and providing analysis, mining and predictive capabilities
  • Digital Biology - software tools to store, retrieve, analyze and predict the composition and structure of genes, proteins and other biomolecules.
  • Cleantech – products and services driving the use of alternative energy sources and lower environmental impact
  • Nanotechnology - advances in materials science at the nanolevel to dramatically improve product performance and open up new product applications
  • AI and Robotics - spread across many different types of applications and industries, but with the common vision to create intelligent machines and programs

 

We prefer early stage projects that already have a validated concept.

Would you sign any NDA?

Confidentiality is a key element in any VC's reputation and success. Our reputation for discretion and integrity has been well earned through years of working with entrepreneurs and companies.
Due to the high volume of projects we are exposed to we are not able to accept any obligation of confidentiality with regard to information submitted during the initial screening process.
If during the subsequent communications we both agree that it is necessary, non-disclosure agreements can be discussed.

What is the process at VentureChoice?

We receive hundreds of business plans a year. The key to getting a plan accepted is to have a sponsor within our partnership.

Once a business plan passes our initial screen, our evaluation and decision process typically takes three to six weeks. As the process unfolds, you may make several presentations to VentureChoice and prospective sponsors. Once sponsored, we work with you to finalize the business and execution plan, term sheets are agreed on and financing and a long-term working relationship begins.

Why should I work with VentureChoice?

Choosing a VC is like choosing a member of your team. Entrepreneurs should carefully assess the value-add of potential investors, seeking VCs who know the company's technology and markets, have built a track record of solid successes, and can provide access to a network that will serve the company well through its growth. VCs should also be pragmatic and helpful while respectful and advocate for your company at all times.

VentureChoice seeks out opportunities to work with technology innovators and companies who have the drive and determination to be category leaders. We add value by helping you to get corporate sponsors and investors, recruit talents, build management team, making tough business and technical decisions as well as promoting and connecting your business.
