CoVenture operates at the intersection of technology and novel asset classes.

 

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 private credit funds that provide private credit capital to alternative private credit platforms, enabling them to finance the loans they originate. We create crypto 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.

PRIVATE CREDIT

CoVenture Private Credit provides capital to lending businesses that are focused on using technology to establish new credit markets, create new credit products or dramatically re-invent an existing form of credit.  We believe that the pioneers who build something truly different in a credit market will create the most sustainable business models.  Given our heritage as a venture firm, we are comfortable with emerging businesses and can provide capital for a company's first loan.
