At Commerce Ventures, our mission is to help entrepreneurs who are innovating in the retail and financial technology fields. This begins with the capital we invest, but we only invest when we believe we can be strategically relevant and helpful to our portfolio companies. Most often, this means leveraging our network of relationships to help companies find more customers, distribution partners, advisors or even key executives. Our investors are a unique and strategic blend of leading entrepreneurs, senior executives and large corporations operating in our focus sectors (mobile, retail, payments, digital marketing).
Commerce Ventures’ strategy is typically NOT to lead investment rounds, but instead we participate alongside top notch, lead investors such as VCs, seed funds and strategic investors. Although we do not target a specific security or round, most of our investments will be in companies which have recruited a core team, developed a flagship product and demonstrated AT LEAST early product-market fit.
