WHO DO WE INVEST IN?
Synapse Capital Partners invests in companies with data-driven software applications that will drive billion dollar changes in leading industries.
Most of all we invest in founders and CEOs who have the vision and drive to capitalize on these opportunities. We know how much work it takes because we’ve been entrepreneurs ourselves.
HOW DO WE INVEST?
We start our investment process by identifying hard problems with big rewards. Our views are shaped by our discussions with our corporate partners, our advisory board and our network of executives and thought leaders. These businesses span a range of industries including Financial Services, Telecom, Automotive, Manufacturing, Healthcare and Media. Once we understand the problem, we look for companies with the best technology, team and business model to address these opportunities.
When we reach out to companies, we have knowledge of the sector and an active investment thesis. Because our investment strategies are driven by our relationships, we are efficient in conducting our due diligence and will bring valuable customer and partnership opportunities post-investment.
WHAT STAGE COMPANIES DO WE INVEST IN?
We focus on companies that have products that have been deployed with customers and are generating commercial revenues.
WHY ARE WE DIFFERENT?
Laser focused on data-driven software applications – We focus exclusively on this market and, as a result, we get it. This means we will come to meetings with an understanding of the market, an investment thesis and relationships that will help drive the success of your company.
Depth of relationships with potential customers / partners – While many firms offer a rolodex of connections, the relationships we bring to bear are different. Synapse Partners’ work with industry leading corporations means that we can offer more than just a name and contact information. Not convinced? We’re happy to walk you through some examples or put you in touch with the CEOs of our portfolio companies.
Insights and understanding – Our industry relationships give us insights into the opportunities and pain points in the Financial Services, Telecom, Retail / CPG and Automotive sectors. We use these insights to help our portfolio companies understand the changing landscape and how to position themselves for successful exits.
