Evo Insights & Blog
EVO Venture Partners invest in early stage startups in software based infrastructures, specifically in backup, security, storage, virtualization, networking and cloud. We add value by providing knowledge, network and experience in addition to seed capital. Deep knowledge is key to our success.
These resources enable us to accelerate the founding team and MVP to a game-changing company. Our approach is resource intensive, therefore we limit ourselves to maximum of 3 transactions per year.
We invest our own money – our interests could not be more aligned and supported by leading investment firms for co-investing follow-on rounds.
