Since 1994, Saturn Partners has taken an active role in the formation and management of seed and early-stage technology companies. These types of investments give us the best opportunity to influence a company’s success — and can also produce very appealing returns.
How successful is our approach? It has helped us to consistently provide top-decile returns since our inception.
What We Look For:
We seek companies with potential for significant growth primarily in information and financial technology, but also in advanced materials and specialty energy. However, as opportunistic investors, we also look in other industries for companies with the potential to generate exceptional returns.
When we uncover opportunities outside our areas of expertise, we tap into our robust network of advisors and mentors who have expertise across various industries and competencies. This external network allows us to expand our investment universe — and creates a significant competitive advantage for our firm.
We specialize in identifying promising companies in locations that other VC firms don’t. In addition to the usual suspects (e.g. Silicon Valley, Boston, New York), we focus on areas throughout the United States that are rich with startup opportunities but underserved by early-stage investors. As a result, many of our companies are in unconventional locations.
Why the broader outlook? Three key reasons:
- Great ideas and strong talent aren’t confined to traditional VC target regions.
- These deals are typically priced more reasonably.
- The companies are more receptive to outside guidance.
