WE INVEST EARLY AND OPEN DOORS FOR THE founders of the future

January Ventures was founded by operators turned investors who believe in an equal opportunity tech ecosystem

‚Äč

We bow down to the entrepreneurs out there. They are dreaming big. Trying to change the world. Riding the ups and downs. They give us energy, motivation and hope.

 

In return, we give our guidance, thought partnership, investment, and introductions joyfully. If we can make the process of creating something from nothing just a little bit easier, then we’ve done some good. If we can get them the attention, opportunities and returns their world changing ideas deserve, then we’ve lived our mission.
