“Principium” translates simply in Latin to “the beginning”
– and is representative of an idea we define ourselves by at Principium Ventures, in more ways than one.
As a unique venture capital firm, we are able to leverage our partnership with the professional development program, GoingVC, to access a vast, global network of both young and experienced investors to source, track, diligence, invest in, and support startups – not just in the epicenters of technology and innovation – but from around the world.
In this way, Principium acts as a catalyst to help launch both the businesses we invest in, as well as the VC careers of many of the members of GoingVC. And, vitally, as our network of these new founders and investors expands, these beginnings we are able to facilitate are amplified.
Our Investment Criteria
Stage – PreSeed and Seed
We invest early and like to stick with our startups for the long-haul – reserving follow-on capital for growth rounds down the road
Sector – Agnostic
We look for compelling companies across a range of industries, led by founders who we think will lead these industries into tomorrow
Geography – Global
Our investor network spans 5 countries and 17 cities, giving us eyes and ears across the world.
Additionally, the digital nature of our partner program, GoingVC, allows us to provide support to our portfolio companies no matter where they’re located or what sector they focus on.
