Cyrus Venture Partners was founded by entrepreneurs. Our aim is to become the first investor for innovative software startups, allowing the founders to tap into our long entrepreneurial and management experience, and helping them build successful companies.
Our sweet spot for initial investment is between prototype and initial market traction (we will typically not invest in presentation-only stage). Following investment, we work closely with the founders to build and study market traction. We then allocate more significant investment to the best performers.
