Madrona Venture Group

Venture capital that goes way beyond capital

Madrona Venture Group funds innovative technology companies, primarily in the Northwest. We fund the passion behind an idea. We fund the potential of that idea to revolutionize the way people work, live or play. In every case, we fund not only with money, but with time, resources and unbridled enthusiasm for all that goes into taking a company from idea to market success. We have a long track record (30 startup exits and counting) of funding success stories, and we have a history of working with the same entrepreneurs on their new ventures. Return on investment matters (of course) but lasting return on relationships matters, too.

Seed and early-stage are our specialty
We've been investing in early-stage technology companies since 1995 and have been privileged to play a role in some of our region's most innovative technology stories. Entrepreneurs come to us to help them build companies from scratch, solve marketing challenges, mitigate risks, and create opportunities for success. We are a resource-rich venture firm that offers a well-established network of internal and external expertise for every stage of the company-building process. Our deep connections give our portfolio companies a competitive advantage in financing, recruiting, strategic planning, and partnering.

Adding value in meaningful ways
We think of ourselves as more than funders. We’re coaches, problem solvers, logistics experts, facilitators and number crunchers. And, we’re believers in our entrepreneurs and their visions. We leverage our experience working with hundreds of companies to help CEOs with the areas they value the most. This could be strategic business advice for the first-time CEO, recruiting help for a company looking to round out the executive team, acquisitions advice, introductions to potential customers, and beyond. We want our companies to succeed, and we put our entire network and expertise behind their efforts. No matter how early in the process you are, let’s talk about the value we can add.
