About us

TheVentureCity is a global early stage venture fund that invests in product-centric startups across the US, Europe and Latam. Our data-driven nature isn’t only reflected in the analytical due diligence we do or how we support our portfolio companies with data insights. We are also building the Growth Scanner, the product that identifies the opportunities and risks of investing in a startup that are only visible by looking at its data.

Thanks to Growth Scanner, we give founders more transparency into the investment decision and insight into their business. We believe that such an approach pushes the startup ecosystem towards being more inclusive, meritocratic, and data-driven.
