Venture Capital for the Rest of Us
Mucker Capital invests in seed and "pre-seed" stage companies building defensible and scalable, Internet software and services businesses outside Silicon Valley.
We partner with exceptional entrepreneurs to provide their earliest institutional funding and work with them side-by-side to help launch and scale their new ventures. But, it is our conviction that we must provide more than just capital. As operators and entrepreneurs ourselves, we roll up our sleeves and work with entrepreneurs in all parts of their businesses that need additional resources –- product development, customer development, business development, operational infrastructure, recruiting and fundraising.
We don't care where you live, where you went to school or who you know. We don't live in Silicon Valley anymore and you don't have to either to build a great company. If you have unique insight into a product or market that you've commercialized into a business, we'd like to hear about it and see if we can help.
Investing outside Silicon Valley
Company building expertise
Humility - We are not the stars of this show. Entrepreneurs and the companies they build are. We’re supporting cast members, in the background, the way venture capital used to be.
Service - We exist to serve our portfolio companies and limited partners. Period.
Integrity - Actions speak louder than words. Socrates said: "The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear."
Continuous Improvement - Thomas Edison said: "The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time." We are constantly striving to be better partners to our portfolio companies.
Diversity - People often call Silicon Valley an "echo chamber." We don't live there anymore. We value diverse points of view, opinions and backgrounds. It’s reflected on our team and in our portfolio.
