Cooper Ventures concentrates on early, seed-stage or first round investments. We prefer to invest in companies which can take advantage of our experience, which includes expertise in financing, technical development, and marketing, especially for larger Internet sites. In some investments we take a board position, but it is not a requirement. We are better described as angel investors then as venture capitalists. The qualities we look for in potential investments are the same as most professional investors:
Large potential market
At least the beginnings of a high-quality management team
Technology (or a product) that is unique
Our investments range in size from $50,000 to $2,000,000.
