We seek entrepreneurs capitalizing upon the transformative opportunities of the First Intelligence Age

The First Intelligence Age is the outcome of the digital transformation revolution where digital technology will affect all aspects of society. In the 21st century, data has become "digital oil".

Wildcat Venture Partners seeks early stage technology startups creating systems of intelligence that enable companies to prospect, refine and monetize digital oil. These systems leverage machine learning to anticipate, influence, and optimize the real-time digital exhaust of customer and user interactions.

Watch this short video to learn about the stage (using the Traction Gap™ Framework) and types of companies we seek to invest in and work with.
