As multi-time technology entrepreneurs ourselves, we know building a business is not easy. Whether you are expanding an existing business in a technology-heavy product direction or you are founding a new internet-driven startup, we know you have two critical challenges:
1 - How do I build my product quickly?
Building a high-performing team is expensive and can take months. In today’s competitive market recruiting and retaining the most qualified talent is difficult, time consuming and expensive.
2 - How do I get investment when I need it?
Finding the right people to invest in your product or company is no easy task. You need investors that will be founder-positive, easy to work with, and will be there for the long term.
Generic seed investors are a dying breed. Northmark Ventures is not generic. We do not watch from the sidelines for months, do a two-week due diligence, write a cheque and then dial-in for board meetings.
We build deep, high-value-add relationships by rolling up our sleeves and working with you now on what matters most…building your product to satisfy your customers. Investment in your business is a natural outcome of the deep relationship that we build together.
In addition to bringing decades of business experience, Northmark uses its own twenty-person technical team for the benefit of your product now, while you hire or expand your own expert team over time. Our team is senior with a decade of experience together. We specialize in “hard” technologies such as blockchain, financial, trading and money-handling applications, embedded hardware, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Our Partner team is:
Venture capitalist, former Deloitte partner, multi-time startup founder, CEO, CFO and COO
Entrepreneur and multi-time technology company co-founder, team builder, CTO
Client Service Partner
Technologist, solutions architect, team leader, entrepreneur, technology community builder
