Village Ventures is an early stage venture capital firm investing in exceptional entrepreneurs building technology and life science companies in emerging domestic geographies. Village Ventures identifies these investment opportunities in partnership with its proprietary nationwide network of early stage venture capital funds that are focused on these emerging domestic geographic markets. Venture capital is a local business, and Village Ventures has built its enterprise around the deeply integrated local VC who knows regional entrepreneurs and is familiar with local opportunities. The Village Ventures structure allows local VCs to utilize a national framework of world-class services and investment support. Because capital alone does not ensure success, Village Ventures also offers back-office support for the fund network and growth resources for entrepreneurs. The combination of local capital and Inflexion Partners' hands-on investment practices--backed by Village Ventures' centralized services and national network--has created an innovative investment strategy, one that is bearing substantive results in the areas of fund raising and deal flow.
