about us

We have our own adventures and
ready to start a new one with you.

Start Ventures is not your typical venture capital firm. We were founded in 2016 with a bold mission to transform the financial sector through technology and innovation. As a global investor, we focus exclusively on early-stage B2B companies in the financial services industry, with a particular emphasis on fintech and insurtech. With inherited deep domain expertise and extensive network from an established yet technological and innovative player which inspired us with the mission of transforming the financial sector, we support visionary founders and operators with the resources and guidance they need to scale their businesses and drive economic prosperity.

We’re funding teams that share our inspiration, and our vision of a fairer and more efficient financial system powered by technology. We’re passionate about helping startups grow and achieve their full potential, and we believe that the right partnership can make all the difference.

Our approach is simple: we seek out the brightest and most talented entrepreneurs, and work with them every step of the way to help turn their ideas into reality. With our extensive network, deep industry expertise, and unwavering commitment to success, we’re confident that we can help take your company to the next level.

At Start Ventures, we’re more than just investors – we’re partners. We believe that building great companies requires more than just money, which is why we offer a range of value-add services to help our portfolio companies succeed. From strategic guidance to operational support, we’re here to help you every step of the way.

We know the troubles and needs of building a company, and we see challenges of our portfolio as challenges of our own. From navigating the uncertain waters of regulation, to finding product-market fit, to fine-tunning your commercial approach to finding the right hire, we will put our experience at your service.
