Wildcat Venture Partners invests in early stage technology startups. The team consists of successful entrepreneurs, now investors, who have significant domain expertise turning startups into market leaders.
The Traction Gap
Industry statistics show that nearly 70% of startups fail to return invested capital. In stark contrast, 68% of the early stage startups the Wildcat team has backed have gone on to success.
To achieve these results, Wildcat has developed a unique investment and operating framework generated from years of startup and investing experience; it is called the Traction Gap™. Wildcat uses the Traction Gap framework to help its portfolio companies create and define their category along with comprehensive go-to-market and financing plans to successfully scale.
Wildcat is a proud sponsor of the Traction Gap Institute™ which offers strategies, tactics and playbooks along with workshops and networking events startups can use to traverse the Traction Gap.
Prospecting & Refining Digital Oil
Where land, capital and oil drove the Industrial Ages, data is fueling the rise of the First Intelligence Age and a digital economy.
"'Data-driven' startups are the wildcatters of the new economy: they prospect for digital oil, extract it and turn it into clever new services..."
– The Economist
We seek entrepreneurs building systems of intelligence that enable companies to prospect, refine and monetize data - digital oil. These entrepreneurs and their companies will become the market disruptors and industry leaders of the First Intelligence Age.
Some of the smartest people we know
We work side by side with management teams to help them confidently architect a well-defined business strategy they can use to scale their company quickly and efficiently.SEE ALL COMPANIES
