Madrona Venture Group

Madrona Venture Group

Madrona Venture Group invests in companies building the new "next," be it upgrading the backbone of technology, creating new business models on the Web, or changing the status quo of communications. You bring the idea, the technology, and enthusiasm. We'll do our part in helping you to realize your vision.

We are a resource-rich venture firm that helps companies realize their full potential via a well established and broad network of internal and external expertise which we draw on at every stage and for every challenge of the company-building experience. When funding early-stage technology companies, we do so with as much excitement for the journey itself (all that goes into building a company from scratch) as the destination (market leadership).

Not every early-stage venture is right for us. (And if it's not, we won't waste your time.) But when the opportunity is right and the chemistry is there, we can accomplish great things together-with hard work, challenges and, yes, absolutely some fun along the way.

So let's talk. Whether you've got a fully realized business plan or just the technology and a vision, we'd like to hear from you.
