What We Do for You

 

WE FOCUS ON FIRST VENTURE ROUNDS

With a focus on Software, Cloud and Big Data Applications in the Pacific Northwest and California, we invest in your company at the point where you are ready to acquire your first customers and hire your early team. For many of our portfolio companies, the partnership begins before we even start talking about your initial investment round. The sooner we build a relationship, the more value we can create over the life of our partnership. 

“We weren’t a traditional bay area investment. We didn’t match the profile and we were very quickly discarded. The Voyager team was able to see in me someone able to build a meaningful business from nothing, and to use that as a foundation to go build something with a venture return profile.” Jesse Proudman CTO, Blue Box Acquired by IBM in 2015

WE’RE ENTREPRENEUR-CENTRIC THROUGHOUT YOUR JOURNEY

Doing what’s best for your company. Offering a collaborative approach at exit. Keeping an even keel amidst inevitable growth turbulence. Helping you fill the funding gaps along the way. That’s how our portfolio companies describe what it’s like to work with Voyager. Our approach centers around you, the entrepreneur. 

“The Voyager team is very good at knowing their role as an investor — what that role is and what it isn’t. Those lines are very clear, so everyone can do their jobs and march forward.” BJ Lackland CEO, Lighter Capital
