Grotech Ventures

We have built a reputation for being a collaborative, long-term partner for entrepreneurs. We not only add value through years of experience, but we also work hard to align our goals with those of our entrepreneurs.

We initially invest between $500,000 and $5 million in early stage, high growth technology companies, reserving significant capital for subsequent investments to support companies through early and growth stages.

We seek creative and driven entrepreneurs building high-potential technology companies in sectors we know well in order to maximize our ability to accelerate the growth of your business.

We look to partner with entrepreneurs who have fresh ideas, breakthrough innovations and unconventional approaches that will yield explosive growth. We believe that our ability to meaningfully contribute to a business’s development is just as important as the capital we invest. As such, we seek investment opportunities that offer us the chance to leverage the experience, insight and network we have built since our inception in 1984. Our approach is personal and long-term, not institutional.
