PE/VC investors

Private Equity (PE) and Venture Capital (VC) investors are the catalysts of innovation and growth in the business world. PE firms primarily target established companies, seeking to optimize operations and unlock value through strategic investments and management expertise. They focus on long-term growth and profitability, often preparing businesses for a future sale or IPO. VC investors, by contrast, are the adventurers of finance, injecting capital into high-potential startups and early-stage companies. They embrace risk for the possibility of outsized returns, often becoming invaluable advisors. Both investor types not only bring capital but also strategic guidance, industry connections, and market insights, propelling their portfolio companies towards success.

.406 Ventures .406 Ventures
We love being involved in the first institutional capital round (typically the Series A)—early enough to be able to truly partner with you and materially impact the growth trajectory of your company. Your company matters. We limit the number of investments in each portfolio to ensure adequate capital and partner bandwidth per company to maximize the chances of success across the board. With .406, you do not get one or two partners, you get the resources of our full team—every investment team member touches every company. We are also dogmatic about never investing in competitive companies, so we will be explicitly aligned with you. Operational experience and entrepreneurial roots are at .406’s core. We may not have seen and done it all, but we certainly know what it is like to build an entrepreneurial company. Our years of experience starting and running our own businesses give us personal insight and access to deep networks that we can offer you as you work to build a great company. We are nimble, flexible and wear many hats for our entrepreneurs. And while we apply our skills and lessons learned across our portfolio, we realize that your company has unique needs and requires a customized approach. We invest in companies aiming to disrupt industries that we know extremely well and where we have the networks to truly accelerate company success. Extraordinary People We invest in entrepreneurs and teams who have demonstrated a passion to achieve the impossible, usually in impossibly little time and on ridiculously limited resources. Large Markets There are great ideas and there are good market opportunities; we look for both. We also believe that venture capital is not the right form of capital for every situation, so we will help you make sure that we have an aligned fit and plan for success. Unique Technology We invest in technologies and tech-driven services that solve thorny problems for big markets in unique and compelling ways. Applying these criteria, we focus on: Cybersecurity Digital Health Data and Cloud
