Wealth Venture Partners


Size of the Market

The Startup must demonstrate that the business will target a large, addressable market opportunity. For Wealth Venture Partners, “large” typically means a total market that can generate $10 billion or more in annual revenues.


Current Revenues and Future Revenue Growth

Wealth Venture Partners seeks out companies that are pre-revenue with a completed beta tested product. Companies we select have a high probability of sales and recurring revenues within 6 months after funding.


Our Vetting Process is Thorough

We meet with each startup company and use our systematic approach in evaluation to choose the best of the best. The companies we invest in must pass 5 primary tests before they become a Wealth Venture Partner investment.


Great Product with Competitive Edge

WVP wants to invest in great products and services with a competitive edge that is long lasting. We look for a solution to a real, burning problem that hasn’t been solved before by other companies in the marketplace. We look for products and services that customers can’t do without – because it’s so much better or because it’s so much cheaper than anything else in the market.


Assessment of Risks

Startups have high risk by nature. WVP’s job is to evaluate risk and minimize it where possible. We speak to the business’s founders, executives, customers, sales people and experts in their market to be absolutely clear about what the business risks are. Then we evaluate how those risks can be managed for the best possible result.



Quite simply, management is by far the most important factor that smart investors take into consideration. We invest in a management team and its ability to execute on the business plan, first and foremost. We are not looking for “green” managers, we are looking ideally for executives who have successfully built businesses that have generated high returns. Founders must also have the ability to lead their teams into a revenue focus versus a product development orientation.
