Wing Venture Capital

When we formed Wing, the first thing we did was strip away all sources of drag and distraction. We then carefully crafted a unique pure-play vehicle purpose-built to be the best at what we do.

Early decisions have profound impact on your company’s long-term trajectory, yet must be made amidst massive uncertainty. The Partners of Wing have deep experience successfully navigating these pivotal early phases, and thrive on helping you build value long before its obvious to the rest of the world. While we engage with you early, our commitment is for the long term. Wing’s sole purpose is to help you build a multi-billion dollar independent company. We’ve done this more than a few times, and know that it takes patience, perspective and relentlessness to pull it off.

We are company-builders, not portfolio managers. The Partners of Wing work directly with you and your company. Our model revolves around a limited number of highly selective investments, and we devote difference-making bandwidth, significant capital and proprietary resources to each one. We have helped build important companies in business technology markets for decades.

Our networks run deep and our credibility is unmatched in our domains. What this means for you is access to unique resources, here at Wing and within our circle of trusted friends, that will accelerate your progress in distinctive fashion.
