WHO WE ARE

Startup Capital Ventures is an early stage venture capital firm based in Menlo Park, California with an office in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi. Our geographic focus is Silicon Valley along with selective investments in Hawaiʻi and elsewhere.

WHAT WE DO

SCV invests in early-stage, capital efficient B2B technology companies with proof of first revenue. Our initial investment ranges from $250,000 up to $1 million with reserves for future funding rounds. For us, capital efficient means companies that require relatively small amounts of capital to achieve success. We typically co-invest with other leading funds at the Series Seed and Series A rounds. We love rolling up our sleeves and working collaboratively alongside great entrepreneurs and founding teams, and we aren’t afraid of hard technology.

PORTFOLIO

Since 2005, SCV has invested in companies across two funds focusing on FinTech, Cloud/SaaS, Security, Healthcare IT,  and IoT.
