645 Ventures makes deeply-researched investments in institutional Seed to Series A rounds for exceptional companies who demonstrate stellar early results in the areas of market validation, product differentiation, team strength, and brand narrative.
We focus primarily on software and Internet companies in areas such as SaaS, application software, financial software, consumer internet, and online marketplaces. We make a majority of our investments in those sectors and prioritize proven business models. We make a minority of our investments in new technology areas where deep technical innovation is occurring and where we believe there is will be a large future market opportunity. These sectors generally leverage the Internet or software in a fundamental way. For these companies, we look for deep technology differentiation plus early market validation or clear opportunity for such. We invest in companies that sell to both enterprise/SMB customers as well as direct to consumers.
