Business Description

Maven Ventures is the leading seed venture fund for emerging consumer software startups propelled by network effects and hypergrowth. The Maven team identifies future consumer trends that will change the way we communicate and live, then invests in great founders with a vision worth fighting for. We’ve already invested in what we foresee as some of the game-changing trends of the future like self-driving cars, novel marketplaces, and virtual reality. Since many of the trends we look for are often unrecognized, we work with coachable founders at the earliest stages of launch to help define their vision. We also fund startups which have already raised a small Seed round and are experiencing initial traction, and need our help to scale the business. We teach founding teams how to reach product/market fit, hone their consumer messaging to grow to millions of customers, and achieve sustainable hypergrowth. Our team and roster of the best consumer growth mentors in the industry teach cutting-edge consumer growth techniques. We strive to be the most active and helpful Seed investors for all of our portfolio companies. Review the testimonials at the bottom of this page to hear directly from our founders.
