Investment Philosophy

Columbus Ventures was founded in 2002 to assist entraprenuers who had new ideas and approaches to solving complex technology and business problems.

Our single strategy for success is allowing our portfolio companies to focus on the key elements for success: initial product development and marketing, while avoiding the burden of administration and regulation. We believe that Columbus Ventures fills a void in the venture capital environment by taking an active part in the success of our portfolio companies.

Our investment criteria are fairly simple. We invest $100,000 to $250,000 plus our time and expertise, in return for 15% to 30% equity (in the form of preferred stock) in companies who have:

  • At least two full-time executives who have put some of their own money into the company;

  • A product or service which can be demonstrated (alpha) and marketed in six to nine months;

  • A business model that can reasonably demonstrate profitability in two to four years.
Columbus Ventures invests in only a few select companies each year. In this way we can devote the time and attention that each company requires. Columbus will invest in many different industry segments, but we prefer businesses that have a tangible product or service that can differentiate them and provide ongoing competitive advantage.
