Questions? We've got answers.
In what sectors do you invest?
We invest in a wide range of B2B and B2C technology companies, including frontier tech, but at this time we generally don’t invest in biotech, pharma, or impact startups.
What exactly does your platform team do?
Our Platform Team is a unique value-add offered to our founders and their companies. We have resources who are experts in finance/CFO, growth marketing, branding and positioning, modeling and analytics, and sales coaching & methodology. For more details, visit the Companyon Platform Team website.
Is there any requirement to use your platform team if you invest in my company?
No, it is optional to use our platform team, however, when we invest, we are committed to make sure that you have a plan and budget to fill your skill gaps and begin accelerating growth starting on the day our investment is made. In many cases, our team can jump in on a fractional basis while you kick off your recruiting and hiring. Most of our portfolio companies use our platform team and have had great success working with us.
Does working with your platform team as a client improve my chances of receiving investment from the fund?
When resources are available, our Platform Team provides services for portfolio companies of some other seed funds that we co-invest with. You should only work with our Platform Team as a non-portfolio client if you genuinely seek the value that they can deliver. We have invested in companies that started as clients, and the engagement helped build a strong relationship, but our investment criteria are the same for all prospective companies.
What’s the relationship between Companyon Ventures and the Companyon Platform Team?
Companyon Ventures is a venture capital firm structured much like most other venture firms. The Companyon Platform Team is managed independently of the fund and does not profit from work performed for portfolio companies.
