Extreme Venture Partners

Extreme Venture Partners is focused on providing early stage venture capital. We recognize that sometimes all that is needed to propel a good idea into greatness is a small amount of funding and support from a seasoned team of technology and business alumnus. We bring together the agility and eagerness of an angel investor with the structure and support of venture capitalists.
