Ringleader Ventures in a Nutshell
1. David & Goliath, Inc. : Our investors are established, incumbent corporations who acknowledge their vulnerability to looming, startup-driven disruption. By investing with Ringleader Ventures, these "Goliaths" are able to partner with the emerging "Davids" and help promote (and profit from) their eventual successes.
2. We Lead with Need: Because our LP's are established enterprises, they have direct access to thousands, even millions, of customers. More precisely, they have access to those customers' insights: Their qualified, quantified wants and needs. By working with our LP's to collect and prioritize their customer insights, we can focus our investment search on those startups that best address them. Startups with solutions to problems worth solving.
3. We Fish in Different Ponds: Because we're issue-focused, not idea-focused, we can broaden our treasure hunt to adjacent sectors. The next great insurance startup might currently think they're a retail play. The next great healthcare startup might think they're an AI company; or maybe an education app. We work to see things in early-stage startups they don't yet see in themselves, which dramatically broadens our deal-flow.
