Seed Investors in Application and Infrastructure
Software Companies

Streamlined Ventures is a seed stage investment firm rooted in the belief that the founders of companies are the true heroes of entrepreneurial value creation in our society. We are passionate about working with visionary founders to help them create exceptional companies and help them capture as much of that value for themselves as possible – they deserve it!

If we stay true to our beliefs and we are good at what we do, then we will benefit too. Our style of engagement with all our stakeholders focuses on low ego behavior, mutual respect and clarity of thought.

We seed invest in visionary founders who are building the next generation of transformational application and infrastructure software companies for the Web, Mobile Web, Social Web and the Enterprise. Our sectors of interest include:

  • technology infrastructure for applications and developers
  • business services offered through APIs
  • businesses seeking to capture granular data about large vertical markets to disrupt incumbent business models in those markets
  • new human computer interface technologies such as wearable computers
  • business services that leverage the principles of collaborative consumption
  • new artificial intelligence technologies
  • the internet of things

We want the companies we invest in to reach dramatic scale while consuming limited amounts of capital. To enable this high level of capital-efficient scalability, we look for founders who have innovative thinking around methodologies to lower the cost of product development and product distribution.
