Illuminate Ventrues is a Micro VC focused on B2B cloud computing. Our team is made up of experienced investors with significant operating and investment track records, complemented by a world-class Business Advisory Council. We invest in US-based high growth, capital efficient companies, typically as the first institutional investor at early stages. Specific areas of interest include cloud computing, SaaS, Big Data, enterprise social and enterprise gamification. Our portfolio includes game changing business solutions from companies like BrightEdge, CalmSea, Hoopla, Influitive, Opsmatic, Yozio and Xactly.
Illuminate Ventures is different - we don't rely on "pattern recognition" or following the herd. We seek new and innovative business ideas led by committed, talented and diverse teams, particularly those that are inclusive of women entrepreneurs. We recognize that great investment opportunities come in a variety of packages - sometimes looking a bit different from the norm.
Illuminate works closely with founders to support them in building truly great companies and teams. We've been there ourselves and know that teams made up of individuals with diverse backgrounds and skills deliver innovative thinking with outstanding results.
