Divergent Ventures is an early-stage venture capital firm that invests in companies operating in the big data, cloud infrastructure and data driven application sectors. It was founded in 2005 and is headquartered in Seattle, Washington.
Divergent Ventures have participated in all stages of venture investing. Their preferred initial investment point is in the first professional round. They will consider seed stage investments and they reserve capital for participation in follow on rounds.
Early Stage investing is well served by being accessible and available and Divergent Ventures have found that time zones make it much more difficult to deliver on the promise of close involvement. They have successfully invested across the country, but are focused on their current efforts on the west coast. In addition to investment capital, they actively work with their portfolio company management teams and potential investment management teams to refine their plans, introduce them to potential customers, employees and investors.
