CoVenture operates at the intersection of technology and emerging asset classes: venture capital, debt and crypto.

 

ABOUT US

CoVenture operates three businesses that bridge technology and finance. We invest in pre-seed venture capital, and build software for the companies we invest in. We manage direct lending funds that provide debt capital to alternative lending platforms, enabling them to finance the loans they originate. We create digital asset funds for individuals, IRAs and institutions to get simple and easy access to cryptocurrencies.

VENTURE CAPITAL

We invest in early-stage startups led by founders who are passionate and knowledgeable about the markets they serve. We have our own software developers and product managers. We work with the founders in our portfolio to help them bring products to market, earning equity for this work and for the cash we invest in their companies.

DEBT FINANCING

CoVenture Special Assets provides capital to emerging lending businesses focused on using technology to open up new credit markets, create new credit products or dramatically re-invent an existing product. We believe those businesses looking to do something truly different in the credit market will build the most sustainable business models. Our heritage as a venture firm allows us to get comfortable with young lending businesses and allows to often provide capital for the first loan made.

DIGITAL ASSETS

CoVenture Crypto creates simple and easy access to cryptocurrencies through a familiar fund structure. We bring traditional asset management practices to provide a safe place for investors, IRAs and institutions to gain exposure to cryptocurrencies. Our experience creating asset management firms, financial products and exchanges provides unique insight to responsibly grow the cryptocurrency ecosystem.
