Venture Capital

Investment Strategy

At Diamond Ventures, our investment philosophy is to create partnerships where our management team can provide meaningful value to our portfolio companies. With more than 100 years of collective experience in the areas of banking, finance, management, marketing and sales, our team brings much more to an investment than just capital.

We target revenue producing companies that have demonstrated their competitive advantage and viability in growth markets. Our portfolio and investment interest ranges across different industries with an emphasis in emerging technologies and the application of technology to enhance existing business processes and solutions. With an opportunistic approach to investing, we believe that strong partnerships and solid working relationships lead to significant returns.

Diamond Ventures looks for

  • Entrepreneurs seeking partners, not passive investors
  • Operating companies poised for growth and expansion
  • Scalable business models that create high barriers to entry and a competitive advantage
  • Companies using technology to facilitate processes, systems or services

Diamond Ventures prefers taking minority positions in companies looking for small to mid-size investments. With established performance metrics, Diamond Ventures has the capability to follow-up with more capital.
