BULL CITY VENTURE PARTNERS IS A VENTURE CAPITAL FIRM INVESTING $250K TO $2 MILLION IN SOFTWARE AND INTERNET COMPANIES.
HOW WE DECIDE
Software, Internet, Mobile, Health IT and E-Commerce
We are located in Durham, North Carolina. Because of that, most of the activity we see is in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. But we will consider any great entrepreneur.
We are early stage investors and often that means we are the first institutional investor. But when there is an exceptional opportunity, we will be opportunistic and invest in seed and growth stage companies.
The entrepreneur and team are the most important part of our investment decision by far, so we look for experienced teams and entrepreneurs that have unique advantages. We want to be so excited about the team that we want the feeling that we want to quit our jobs and go work there.
HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT
We take a team approach to venture investing. One of us may lead an investment, but we are both active in due diligence and all our companies get the full support and engagement from the partners and Advisory Board.
We are also known for over-servicing our companies. We hope to work as hard as our entrepreneurs. We are active connectors with customers, partners, acquirers, other sources of capital and talent.
We have one of the best partner-to-company ratios in the VC business. This allows us to add more value to each company. This also means each company is important to us. Our focused portfolio also leads to increased alignment with our entrepreneurs.
We are constantly reminded that without the entrepreneurs selecting us, we go out of business. We continue to work towards earning the respect of the entrepreneurial community.
