About Wildcat

Founded in 2015, Wildcat Venture Partners invests in early stage entrepreneurs building systems of intelligence that enable companies to prospect, refine and monetize digital oil - the data generated by the exhaust of the digital economy in the 21st century and the First Intelligence Age.

Wildcat focuses on startups leveraging key technologies such as: artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR)/virtual reality (VR), highly scalable data infrastructure, machine learning (ML), and the Internet of Things (IoT).

We are specifically interested in teams applying these technologies in the following markets: consumer, digital health, edtech, enterprise software, fintech, marketing technology, and marketplaces.

While we will opportunistically invest in later stage companies, Wildcat’s strategic investment interest is in companies that are currently entering or in the Traction Gap.

We use the Traction Gap Framework - terminology, strategies and playbooks – to work with teams to help them successfully transition from product development into company scaling.

"Wildcat’s team is a group of proven investors and entrepreneurs who have personally and successfully made the Traction Gap journey and have led many startups safely to the other side."

– Rob Frohwein, Founder & CEO, Kabbage
