Our Investment philosophy
At Gate 93 Ventures we try to keep things simple. We want to focus on very simple investment criteria: Post-seed companies, with a strong team, who are already making some money.
We believe we have the most to offer when they're ready to scale. Our goal is to work alongside the founders every step of the way, to support the company achieve ambitious goals.
We work with companies at their post-seed or Series A stage. On top of our financial contribution, our strong network of advisors and mentors are our strongest asset for founders.
We believe that strong teams trump great ideas. Because of that we look for teams that have experience in their industry and have sufficient technical skills to drive the company to the next level.
We will not fund single founders as we believe in teams as the best way to succeed. If you are a single developer creating the next big thing, we may help you find the right person to join you but we will not take a position in your company until you can start building the core of your organization.
Teams with strong technical chops are particularly interesting for us as we believe that we can be more helpful, providing support with the product definition, operational processes and additional business support.
Revenues of >$100K (Annualized)
While we may consider B2C companies in hyper-growth mode, we believe it's important to know how to make money as early as possible to guarantee the long term sustainability of the business.
By looking for revenues we are looking for two things: ability to identify customers that are willing to invest in your solutions and the ability to balance building a company while selling your products and services.
